Glossary of Diagnostic Reasoning


On this page you can find a short glossary of diagnostic reasoning terms related to the gut feelings research topic and composed by the Cogita group aiming to define some terms used in their publications. Members of the Cogita group described the terms and then reviewed the wordings. Finally, the Maastricht-Antwerp research group determined the glossary in a consensus meeting. The list does not pretend to be complete and new information, terms and references will be entered if any.

Each term starts with a short description and then a possibility to read more about this specific item including relevant references on a next page.

If you have remarks or additions or new topics, please send your ideas to We will add them after agreement of members of the Cogita group and the Maastricht-Antwerp group.
