Abstract

The authors report their experience in the formulation of an Expert System for computer aided diagnosis in the examination of the lumbar spine with computed tomography. A large number of steps are identified in the process of diagnostic evaluation of CT examinations; about 80 decisional rules are considered and arranged in five 'areas'. The Expert System under study is a first proposal, intended for use by radiologists with some basic training.
