DXplain [Barnett et al., 1987; Barnett et al., 1998] is a decision support system developed at the Laboratory of Computer Science at the Massachusetts General Hospital. It was initially described by its developers as "poor man's Internist-1".

DX plain takes advantage of a large data base of the crude probabilities of over 4500 clinical manifestations associated with over 2000 different diseases.
