## al·go·rithm

(al'gō-ridhm),
A systematic process consisting of an ordered sequence of steps, each step depending on the outcome of the previous one. In clinical medicine, a step-by-step protocol for management of a health care problem; in computed tomography, the formulas used to calculate the final image from the transmitted x-ray data.

## algorithm

Decision-making A logical set of rules for solving a specific problem, which assumes that all of the data is objective, that there are a finite number of solutions to the problem, and that there are logical steps that must be performed to arrive at each of those solutions NIHspeak A step-by-step procedure for solving a problem; a formula.
