Abstract
Shannon's mutual information function is useful in modeling clinical decisions. The equivocation function determines useful bounds on the average probability of error. A model for medical diagnosis using Shannon's uncertainty function is demonstrated. An example is provided to illustrate the importance of the equivocation function.
