Abstract

A computer consultation system has been developed based on a model of the mechanisms and clinical course of treated and untreated glaucoma. A novel characteristic of the system, called CASNET/Glaucoma, is that it can, for a particular case, present alternative opinions and reasoning derived from different consultants. To provide the system with a variety of opinions, a computer-based network of collaborators who share in the development and testing of the programs was established. Japanese researchers had access to the CASNET/Glaucoma system, and were able to examine cases previously tested in the U. S. as well as enter new cases for the purpose of this study. Of 12 new Japanese cases, 11 were correctly diagnosed by the system; the remaining case was a characteristically Japanese variant of glaucoma (Harada's desease).
