Taking the bias out of pain diagnosis
from Scientific American
Right now, health care professionals only have that one way to measure a patient's pain, and it's completely subjective. Subjectivity is a problem because people rank the same pain differently, which results in different medical care. In other words, the same numerical ranking might get treated differently, depending on the patient. But now, a pair of advances in technology could change this by giving physicians objective ways to measure patients' pain.
