Subject of course

Methods and techniques for diagnoses and plan managements (to design, to plan, to execute, to monitor and to evaluate and analyse therapeutic plans).


  • Introduction to medical systems of diagnosis
  • Expert Systems and Knowledge-Based Systems
  • Evidence-Based Medicine (EDM)
  • Definition: guidelines, protocols, etc.
  • Planning, Scheduling, Workflow Management - in the context of medical guidelines and protocols
  • Development and adaptation of guidelines and protocols (life cycle)
  • Assessment and quality assurance of guidelines and protocols: Quality Appraisal Instruments
  • Computer-interpretable guidelines and protocols formalism
  • Example: modelling of guidelines and protocols
  • Visualization as a means for diagnosis and treatment planning


In this course concepts, methods, and tools for computer-supported diagnosis and treatment are taught. During the lab the students will be given practical assignments chosen from the topics of this lecture.
