CONSULTANT from Cornell University

CONSULTANT is a diagnostic support system used to suggest possible diagnoses or causes for clinical signs and to provide a brief synopsis of the diagnosis/cause including:   

  1. a general description
  2. species affected
  3. the signs associated with it
  4. a list of recent literature references

CONSULTANT is supported by a database consisting of hundreds of signs, thousands of diagnoses/causes, and tens of thousands of literature references.

CONSULTANT can be used in one of two basic modes by clicking the appropriate menu option or link in the header:  Search by Diagnosis or Search by Signs.  In the Diagnosis mode you can search for a specific diagnosis based on a species and one or more diagnosis keywords.   In the Sign mode you can search for possible diagnoses based on a species and one or more signs (specified using a keyword search or by picking from a list.)  When either search finishes, you can display the synopsis of any of the "found" diagnoses.
