Abstract : Physiological data from 995 patients were collected for the purpose of preliminary disease diagnosis by automated methods. The data consist of the age, sex, and results of twelve blood chemistry tests for each patient along with the attending physician's final diagnosis of disease. The information obtained from this survey has been compiled in a form to allow for the application of Bayesian techniques in automation diagnosis. (Author)
