    Abstract

    J. A. Reggia's (1978) generalized set covering model is used for determining the diseases which are present in a patient from his symptoms. Several shortcomings in the basic model are described, and it is shown how they can be overcome by using a method for reasoning under uncertainty. The model is used to determine treatments for stroke patients, showing that set covering is appropriate for determining treatments for diseases as well as diseases from symptoms.
