Google 'aids doctors' diagnoses

Using internet search engine Google can help doctors diagnose tricky cases, researchers have said. A team of Australian doctors Googled the symptoms of 26 cases for a study in the New England Journal of Medicine. In 15 cases, the web search came up with the right diagnosis, the paper published on the British Medical Journal website reports. The authors say Google can be a "useful aid", but UK experts said the internet was "no replacement" for doctors.

Google is the most popular search engine on the web, with access to more than three billion medical articles - and searching for health information is one of the most common uses of the web. And while doctors carry a huge amount of medical information in their heads, they may need to seek further help if they come up against an unusual case.
