On Medical Avatars in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis: (IGWHC) - Lupine Publishers

On Medical Avatars in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis by Alain L Fymat in Interventions in Gynaecology and Women’s Healthcare (IGWHC) in Lupine Publishers

In the Hindu religion, an avatar is the incarnation of a god, a metamorphosis or a change, usually for the worse. More commonly, it is a frustrating event or an accident. By contrast, in the physical sciences and in engineering, it is a “model” that allows one to simulate numerically a physical phenomenon or instrument or an engineering device. Providing the model is a “good” representation of that phenomenon, instrument or device, it enables one to describe a certain reality. It also enables one to predict the instrument or device performance for any assumed governing parameters. Importantly, it obviates the need to physically construct that instrument or device for every plausible set of parameters, a hopeless waste of time, effort and resources. With the template provided by the model, all possible situations could be mimicked straightforwardly and their performance determined merely by changing the underlying parameters and running the template in a numerical processor (computer).
