    This paper describes a program for computing optimal sampling schedules for multiinput-multioutput experiments designed for parameter estimation of physiological systems models. Theory of the algorithm and details of its implementation are given. Practical applications of the software to models of glucose-insulin regulation, ketone body, and insulin kinetics are presented. Results document the pot... View full abstract»

    A software package, written in Pascal, whkh automates the shape management process associated with fitting prosthetic sockets to transtibial (below-knee) amputees, is described. The system allows an operator to apply global and piecewise transformations, based upon clinkal measurements, to a primitive socket database. These transformations yield a modified socket database which defines the surface... View full abstract»

  • Answer Justification in Diagnostic Expert Systems - Part I: Abductive Inference and Its Justification

    Answer justification refers to the ability of an expert system to explain how or why it arrived at certain conclusions (such as a patient's differential diagnosis or treatment recommendations). In this paper, we describe an "abductive" inference method suitable for use in medical expert systems. We then demonstrate how this method can support a clinically plausible form of answer justification in ... View full abstract»

  • Answer Justification in Diagnostic Expert Systems - Part II: Supporting Plausible Justifications

    This paper describes how a new method for answer justification in abductive diagnostic expert systems, presented in a preceding companion paper (Part I), can be supported in a domain-independent fashion. Both the issues of explaining why a disorder is included in a differential diagnosis and why it is ranked the way it is relative to its "competitors" are addressed. This approach to answer justifi...

  • Converting Mathematical Models of Physiological Systems to Relational Database Schemes for Analysis and Comparison

    It is proposed that computable mathematical models of physiological systems can be explained and studied by a query language based upon converting the source code into a relation database scheme. In such a scheme, each assignment statement is assumed to be equivalent to a functional dependency. The dependencies formed constitute a lossless decomposition of the model scheme when the derived depende... View full abstract»

    The Johns Hopkins Oncology Center has been using a clinical information system since 1977 to assist in medical decision making and protocol directed patient management. This paper describes how these functions have been implemented in terms of their data model. The intent is to 1) facilitate transfer of the concepts used at Johns Hopkins to other clinical systems, and 2) illustrate the power of da... View full abstract»

    This paper identifies several published models of cardiovascular function, and attempts to analyze them in terms of the physiological processes which are embedded in their structure. It appears that representative models have increased in size and complexity in direct proportion to increases in the power and suitability of available computing machinery. An early focus on pulsatile hemodynamics wit... View full abstract»

    Contracting for computer software is a novel problem, with complex technical and legal issues. Acceptance testing is. the legal tool used to define satisfactory performance. However, both legal and technical concepts must be substantially improved to allow the contracting process to carry out the intentions of the parties. View full abstract»
