Abstract:

A computer based dental program has been developed by the Great Lakes Dental Research Institute, Great Lakes, Illinois, and the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory, NAVSUBASE NLON, Groton, CT. It is a rule-based diagnostic system for use with trauma and non-trauma related dental emergencies and for the differential diagnosis of soft tissue lesions. The purpose of this report is to provide documentation for the program. Included in the documentation is a copy of the dental questionnaires, a list of the symptoms and diagnoses considered by the program, identification of responses used in branching to subsequent questions, identification of responses used by the diagnostic rules, and the rules to arrive at a diagnosis.
