simulation

 [sim″u-la´shun]
1. the act of counterfeiting a disease; malingering.
2. the imitation of one disease by another.

sim·u·la·tion

(sim'yū-lā'shŭn), Do not confuse this word with stimulation.
1. Imitation; said of a disease or symptom that resembles another, or of the feigning of illness as in factitious illness or malingering.
2. In radiation therapy, use of a geometrically similar radiographic system or computer to plan the location of therapy ports.
[L. simulatio, fr. simulo, pp. -atus, to imitate, fr. similis, like]

simulation

Medspeak
The controlled representation of dynamic phenomena, which is used when real world data are either unavailable or performing the actual process is undesirable. Simulations are based on observing other system functions, or by assessing a hypothetical system created from existing data.
