ConceptDifferential diagnoses
DescriptionA set of 1 or more diagnoses considered as reasonable but as yet hypothetical causes of the patients signs and symptoms Set of one or more interim diagnoses that could account for a patient's history, examination findings, measurements and results. In practice, the intent is that as further evidence is gathered differential diagnoses will be eliminated one by one until one diagnosis becomes most likely.
UseUse to record a set of differential diagnoses that are to be used as part of the diagnostic process.
MisuseNot to be used to record information about working problems or diagnoses - use EVALUATION.problem.
PurposeTo express one or more suspected or probable diagnoses, until a single, working diagnosis is determined.
