  abstract =     "In the field of medicine it is of vital importance to
                 accurately predict the presence of a disease
                 (diagnostic prediction)or the future occurrence of a
                 certain event (prognostic prediction). Genetic
                 programming provides a method to develop such
                 prediction models in an optimal way. We discuss as an
                 example the diagnostic prediction of pulmonary embolism
                 (PE),and compare the method of genetic programming with
                 the logistic regression technique, which is well-known
                 in the medical field.",
