Gomuła, J., Pancerz, K., Szkoła, J.: Copernicus - an Expert System Supporting Differential Diagnosis of Patients Examined Using The MMPI Test: an Index-Rule Approach. In: V. Traver, A. Fred, J.

       In the paper, we present the Copernicus system - a computer tool supporting differential diagnosis of patients with mental disorders. As an example, we discuss results for a sample of 479 women examined by means of the MMPI-WISKAD personality inventory. There have been used the inductive classifiers based on the C4.5 decision tree algorithm. We have accomplished an overview of indexes generated on the basis of examined sample by several systems: Eichmann’s, Diamond’s, Goldberg’s, Taulbee-Sisson’s, and Panda-APAP (mixed with respect to indexes).
