This program is designed for a urologist as a Decision Support System to facilitate the pre-diagnosis and identify the definite diagnosis as quickly as possible with the help of symptoms and physical examination by taking into consideration all the possible diseases with cross-questioning. The aim is to enable the physician to display on the monitor all the possible diseases causing the arising symptoms by entering the symptoms and the physician's observations into the database with 'yes' or 'no' type answers.
