Differential Diagnosis


A Differential Diagnosis (abbreviated DDx, ddx, DD, D/Dx, or ΔΔ) is a systematic diagnostic method used to identify the presence of an entity where multiple alternatives are possible (and the process may be termed differential diagnostic procedure), and may also refer to any of the included candidate alternatives (or candidate conditions). This method is essentially a process of elimination or at least a process of obtaining information that shrinks the "probabilities" of candidate conditions to negligible levels, by using evidence such as symptoms, patient history, and medical knowledge to adjust epistemic confidences in the mind of the diagnostician (or, for computerized or computer-assisted diagnosis, the software of the system). Differential diagnostic procedures are used by physicians and other trained medical professionals to diagnose the specific disease in a patient, or, at least, to eliminate any imminently life-threatening conditions. Often each individual option of a possible disease is called a differential diagnosis (for example, bronchitis could be a differential diagnosis in the evaluation of a cough that ends up with a final diagnosis of common cold).

Symposiums & Workshops on Differential Diagnosis are Symposium on Differential Diagnosis of Abdominal Lesions, Differential Diagnosis, Symposium on Tuberculosis, Mini-symposium: melanocytic skin lesions. Symposium on mastoiditis: Differential diagnosis in acute mastoid disease, Differential diagnosis of rapidly progressive dementia, International Symposium Histological Differential Diagnosis of Skin Diseases, Symposium on the larynx; III-Differential diagnosis of diseases of the larynx, Differential Diagnosis and Management of Acquired Dysarthrias, Assessment, Differential Diagnosis and Management of Children with Speech Disorders, Differential Diagnosis & Management of Acquired Motor Speech , Differential Diagnosis in Biomechanics of the Lumbar Spine.

Differential diagnosis has four steps The physician Gathers all information about the patient and creates a symptoms list. The list can be in writing or in the physician's head, as long as they make a list
Lists all possible causes (candidate conditions) for the symptoms. Again, this can be in writing or in the physician's head but it must be done
Prioritizes the list by placing the most urgently dangerous possible causes at the top of the list
Rules out or treats possible causes, beginning with the most urgently dangerous condition and working down the list. Rule out—practically—means use tests and other scientific methods to determine that a candidate condition has a clinically negligible probability of being the cause
In some cases, there remains no diagnosis. This suggests the physician has made an error, or that the true diagnosis is unknown to medicine. The physician removes diagnoses from the list by observing and applying tests that produce different results, depending on which diagnosis is correct
