The author reported previously that we produced a tongue diagnosis supporting system by applying the syndrome determination process on a discriminating system based on the fuzzy theory. In this study, the results of both the tongue diagnosis of coldness-heat and the four methods of diagnosis of coldness-heat were compared with those of the diagnosis using this supporting system. To evaluate the diagnostic ability of our tongue diagnosis supporting system, the results of both the tongue diagnosis and the four methods of diagnosis were compared with those of the diagnosis using this system. The diagnosis using the supporting system was consistent with the tongue diagnosis in 80% and the four methods of diagnosis in 40%.Further detailed studies must be made improving this diagnostic supporting system.
