Abstract

The therapeutic effects of acupoint-treatment for some diseases have been confirmed in many scientific experiments. Compared to the use of drugs, acupoint-based treatment can effectively alleviate some diseases without the side effect. Therefore, understanding the relationship between acupoints and diseases is important. In our work, we compile a database about diseases and their corresponding acupoints from a large number of books and research papers. We analyze the disease-acupoint correlation using these data and visualize their connections in an interactive way.
