This subsection is so far empty, but it is unfortunately the nature of websites that, as in so much of computing, it is far easier to create a potential subsection in the original design rather than to try to add such subsections at a later stage.
Our apologies. Hopefully you will not be disappointed in future.
In theory doctors are expected to memorise the prognosis figures for many different complex situations. In reality, while some may be good at such feats of memory, the average doctor forgets such figures almost as soon as they have been learnt. Attempts have been made to incorporate such figures into commercial clinical computer systems but the cost of trying to do this independently on each incompatible system is far to great. Only when a) the data items in such systems have been standardised and b) when there is a single cost free source linking such figures to specific data will it be practical to expect computer systems to provide clinicians with such information.
