From: Misdiagnosis and undiagnosis due to pattern similarity in Chinese medicine: a stochastic simulation study using pattern differentiation algorithm

Figure 1

Flowchart of the simulation study for investigation of pattern differentiation errors. Departing from Zangfu single patterns dataset, manifestation profiles were simulated according to the combination of examination methods. Cases (true positive) manifestation profiles were tested with criteria F %,K and N %-cutoff . Pattern differentiation outcomes (correct, misdiagnosis and undiagnosis) were categorized for analysis of association with pattern similarity and the Four Examinations.
