Suggested Points

 

This screen displays all the optional Acupuncture Points Treatments the system found, based on the analysis and the filters. The screen allows the user to select treatments, organize them and carry out further filtering processes.

 

Clicking on any point from the list will display some information in the boxes on the right. The upper boxes displays information regarding the Position (the Location of the Point) and the Needling Technique, and Nature elements (if found). The boxes at the bottom of the screen displays all the indications and functions related to the selected point. Double clicking on a certain indication will open a window, which displays further details about that indication.

 

Clicking on the [Show Image] button displays pictures and drawings of the point.

The [Filter Indexes] button displays the Syndromes and Symptoms that determined or influenced the treatment suggestions. 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 Points.

 

Another filtering method is using the Functions Filter drop down list. The Functions list contains only functions that are related to the current list of Suggested Points. Select a function, in order to narrow down the list of Suggested Points to contain only relevant points.

 

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

 

Clicking on one of the frequency histograms of the graph highlights the related point 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.
