Abstract

A generalized scheme for building consultation systems based on techniques of artificial intelligence (A. I. ) was used to construct a sequence of thyroid consultation models. This scheme, called EXPERT, provided a language in which the decision making elements and rules of the clinical expert were defined, compiled, and tested against a data base of cases. A report is presented on the incremental process of refining the original model through repeated cycles of empirical testing, re-definition, and re-testing. This process was facilitated by the development of programs that interfaced the EXPERT system with the independent thyroid data base, and analyzed performance, thus enabling a rapid assessment of the effect of changes in the decision making rules.
