Clinical Diagnosis

A clinical diagnosis is a statement of a patient’s medical condition after a physician does his interview or history-taking and physical examination.

The data from interview or history-taking are called symptom-data and those from physical examination are called sign-data.

The processing of the symptom-data and sign-data results in a clinical diagnosis, usually using pattern recognition or pattern matching.

The symptom-data and sign-data complement each other in arriving to a clinical diagnosis which must be as accurate as possible.
