Web-based program may aid in diagnosing knee pain

December 18, 2014

Researchers evaluated the program’s ability to collect pain history from 527 consecutive ambulatory patients with knee pain and make a differential diagnosis for them through the use of an internet questionnaire during a 3-month period. The program made its diagnosis by selecting from 26 common diagnoses relating to knee pain.
