A medical diagnosis aid/expert system. Large database with thousands of medical condition names (diseases) associated with a symptom/sign/event pattern. Suitable for personal or professional user. Lab analysis and drug reactions separate functions. Entries in the database, in their description, are intended to aid diagnosis. These rarely contain a complex description, more clues and hints to diagnosis. Treatment information is for the general user only.

This database has been put together from also hundreds of case studies of brain symptoms and the final diagnosis. The IRC is an irreducible complexity universe. All symptoms known that could happen when an area of the brain is affected, are placed in the IRC (these inferred from case studies). The analysis uses this IRC universe to develop short lists. So far it seems over 95% accurate in the short lists presented and other information produced. Compare 95% accuracy to a typical medical diagnosis which when it comes to brain conditions can be way off the mark or take months or even years to attain certainty. The neurons (cells) in the brain are super sensitive to internal energy and attempt to form images in the mind’s eye when something is wrong. Thus a person who had a near fatality miss with an aneurysm may describe an experience of sometimes (before a conclusive diagnosis was made) imagining water hose over the head and water flowing over the head. It is clues like these that aid the IRC’s. It does take a bit of experimentation with this analysis function to learn to use it well. The results lists can be long depending on the inquiry. There are lots of predefined inquiries that could be used asis for many situations (saves ticking check boxes presented at the start of the analysis).
Why so many brain issue case studies? There is a poverty of correct and timely brain issue diagnosis. Physicians, even brain specialists, are not neuroscientists. So many clues does the patient provide when he or she explains continual headaches or infections or early stage aneurysms (early stage means the blood clotting mechanism still able to repair). These clues usually go above the head of physicians because they are not neuroscientists. So, from my point of view, actual case studies is perhaps a better way to convey a problem to a physician. These case studies (about 500 from memory) are from patient’s own narratives about how it all began. Even a case study of a child of two medical doctors totally oblivious to the true and critical significance of symptoms she was telling them about. Diagnosing brain issues is not easy. On the above display, before you click the doctor’s icon with an inquiry, you have lots of checkboxes to tick too that attempt to capture some of the basic patient experiences that in the end were related to a brain issue.
