Suggested Combinations


This screen displays all the optional treatments involving Point Combinations, resulting from the analysis and filtering process. The screen displays all the optional treatments and allows you to select from them. It also organizes them and supports further filtering.


Clicking on any of the Suggested Point Combinations from the list, displays a Combination Description in the box on the right. The Combination Description explains how the combination works, and supplies some information about the points. 


The [Filter Indexes] button displays the syndromes and symptoms that determined or influenced the Suggested Point Combinations. These syndromes and symptoms were selected throughout the diagnosis, or added by the system as possible references. Select syndromes and symptoms by marking the checkboxes. This way you may filter the results of the diagnosis and narrow down the list of Suggested Point Combinations.


Another filtering method is using the Functions drop down list. The Functions list contains only functions that are related to the current list of Suggested Point Combinations. Select a function, in order to narrow down the list of Suggested Point Combinations to include only relevant items.


A graph, displayed at the bottom of the screen, represents the number of times the Point Combinations have repeated themselves throughout the process of making the lists. This feature is especially helpful when there are many Point Combinations on the list. This visualization helps you trace the Point Combinations, which appear most frequently in the crosschecks. The frequency does not necessarily imply which treatment is required, however, the graph may hint which Point Combinations should be paid attention before others.


Clicking on one of the frequency histograms of the graph highlights the related Point Combination on the list with a blue stripe.


You can hide the graph by clicking on the [Graph Off] button. You can display the graph again by clicking on the same button now labeled [Graph On].


It is possible to change the appearance of the graph by using the buttons at the bottom of the screen. You can turn it into a 3D graph, as well as change the default histogram and background colors.


You can resize the display boxes by dragging the mouse. Place the mouse on the right side of the list and when the cursor changes, you can drag it in order to determine the ratio between the boxes. You can determine the height of the graph by dragging its edges vertically.
