Medical diagnosis is a model of technical diagnosis for historical reasons. At this point, technical diagnosis results as a set of information processing techniques to identify technical faults can be extent to the medical field. Such situation is referring to the modeling of the cases and to the use of the information regarding the states, medical interventions and their effects. Diagnosis is possible not only through a rigorous modeling but also through an intelligent use of the practice bases that already exist. We examine the principles of such diagnosis and the specific means of implementation for the medical field using artificial intelligence techniques usual in engineering.
