    Interpreting Definitions: The Problem of Interpreting Definitions of Medical Concepts.Per-Erik Liss, Olle Aspevall, Daniel Karlsson & Urban Forsum - 2004 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 7 (2):137-141.
    During the last hundred years medical language has been influenced by scientific and technological progress. As a result uncertainty in medical communication is increasing.

The purpose of the article is to emphasise a main source of uncertainty — the problem (...)
