CABRERA-JOJOA, Christian Humberto. Sedea: Prototype expert system for the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases organ based internist. Univ. Salud [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.2, pp.207-218. ISSN 0124-7107.

To make a good diagnosis is vital to the successful in the treatment of a disease. Therefore, tools that contribute to more accurate diagnosis are of great interest. Particularly, immunology specialists do not have tools to support the organ-specific autoimmune diseases diagnosis process. This makes that during this process, specialists must resort to their experience and to the formalized knowledge of this medicine area. But when the knowledge is not at hand or simply no one has the experience, the diagnosis presents complications which will surely impact on the patient's health. Different efforts to collaborate in diagnostic task has been made from the IT field; generally in the building of Experts Systems that model the specialist knowledge to certain conditions. This paper proposes the creation of an Expert System prototype for the Diagnostic of organ-specific Autoimmune diseases SEDEA, which not only integrates the clinical knowledge with the Internist descriptive model through an ontology that allows to handle the different concepts using rules declared in the JESS inference engine, but alsomoffers interfaces toeasilyinsert and process data.

Keywords : Autoimmune diseases; diagnosis; expert system; Internist; ontological model.
