A pilot study was developed to study the feasibility of using a computer as an aid to dermatologic diagnosis. The pilot study was successful and demonstrated that reliable diagnosis could be achieved.

The study also showed this to be an excellent method of investigating the various disease attributes used in making a diagnosis and the diagnostic process itself. This study also showed that histologic data can be subjected to computer analysis and diagnosis.
