  20. 20. IBM Research - Almaden An Aalim Scenario Symptoms of hypertension, fatigue, weakness, severe shortness of breath, congestion and cough. Lung X-ray shows congestion in lung. Echocardiogram rules out chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congenital heart disease. The diagnosis is acute bronchitis. Statistical analysis of echocardiogram reveals right side of heart enlarged, left side reduced – only apparent when compared to hundreds of other Disease Candidate echocardiograms. 6% 3% Chr.OPD The statistical analysis suggests primary 52% CongHD Ac.Bronch 39% pulmonary hypertension (PPH), which is the PPD correct diagnosis.
