- Differential Diagnosis
- Try building your search one term at a time, and be as specific as you can! Search term example: "chronic cough".
- Do not enter multiple findings such as "anemia, chronic cough, weight loss, vomiting" all at the same time.
- After selecting your term from the search results a list of possible diagnoses will be generated. If the list is too long, you will be able to narrow it down by entering additional terms.
- Do not enter values such as "heart rhythm 110" or "sodium 125", instead use "tachycardia" or "hyponatremia".

What is a Finding?
A finding could be a sign, symptom, lab value, occupation if a condition is often attributable to a job, travel location for regional diseases, or an X-ray or EKG or other test results. Virtually anything that could be used to help diagnose a patient may be considered a finding. There are more than 30,000 findings in DiagnosisPro.
What is a Relationship?
A relationship is the association between findings and the possible conditions or diseases associated with the chosen findings for a differential diagnosis. These relationships between findings drive the process of narrowing down possible diagnoses in a Differential Diagnosis. There are more than 300,000 relationships in this program based on how findings interrelate.
Possible Findings for a Differential Diagnosis
DiagnosisPro has over 30,000 findings so we want to make sure that you are aware of the main categories of findings in this database to choose from to arrive at a Differential Diagnosis.
- Clinical Findings: (Signs, Symptoms, Course Variations and other findings of the condition's clinical presentation)
- ECG (EKG) Findings: (e.g., P wave, PR interval, T wave, Rhythm, Hypertrophy)
- Lab Results (Microbiology Findings and abnormally high or low lab values that point to the condition, e.g., Abnormal Bone Marrow or Low Cholesterol)
- Pathology Findings: (e.g., Pathology and Biopsy findings)
- Imaging Findings: (e.g., X-Ray, CT scan, Ultrasound, Angiography, and Isotope Scan)
- Demographic data: (e.g., the Patient's Family History, Occupation, Recent Travels Locations, etc.)
- Existing Disease and Conditions: (e.g., Pancreatitis, Urinary Tract Infarction, etc.)
