Abstract: Diagnosis is central to the practice of medicine. The diagnosis is the process of determining the nature of a disorder by considering the patient's signs and symptoms, medical background, and - when necessary - results of laboratory tests and procedures.

The physician makes decisions in a climate of uncertainty. He or she estimates the likelihood of disease and decides whether further tests or therapies are justified. The information used to modify the diagnostic hypothesis consists of the history, the pertinent physical examination, the results of laboratory tests and other diagnostic procedures.

Thus, on the basis of information gathered at any moment about the patient, a decision on the subsequent movement of the patients is determined. Not infrequently there is a lack of precise information (e.g., history of birth trauma, kernicterus), or the information is ambiguous (results in the upper or the lower limits of the normal), or uncertain (family history), or doubtful (history of rheumatic fever).

In a series of papers and two books [1,2] Generalized Net (briefly: GN; for the GNs see [3]) models of the processes of diagnostic are described.
