[Use of a computer to predict the development of vertebrogenic lumbosacral radiculitis].

Abstract

On the basis of a linear discriminant analysis, a special system of automatized prognosis and early diagnosis of vertebrogenic lumbosacral radiculitis was elaborated with the aid of a computer. The system permits to elucidate among the population examined a group of individuals with high risk of the disease. The information file for computer processing included data of the studies on 24 risk factors in 350 patients and 450 individuals in the control group. The prognostical value of different risk-factors is discussed. The results of the system trial in industrial conditions are given.
