The concept of differential diagnosis is often at the heart of Indiana medical malpractice trials. A differential diagnosis is the process used by doctors to determine the cause of a patient's symptoms. The doctor creates a list of the conditions that could be causing the patient's problems, and then pares down the list through a process of elimination until a diagnosis is determined.
