Diagnostics of Traditional Chinese Medicine
These are the methods used to collect data relating to a patients’ pathological condition. This generally includes inspection, listening/smelling, pulse-taking and inquiry (questioning). These tools are vital in aiding practitioners of Chinese Medicine to accurately diagnose and differentiate pathological conditions.
Diagnostics of Traditional Chinese Medicine acts a bridge connecting TCM theory to its clinical specialisms and is therefore an essential part of practitioner development.
