Can you imagine a world in which the DC, MD and Attorney all view the patient from the exact same perspective? They may disagree on approach to treatment but they will agree on the veracity of the patient's complaint of pain - the illusive, subjective claim which thus far has been impossible to quantify. Other than weddings and funerals, where all agree on the appropriate emotion, getting everyone on the same page with regards to a patient's condition is more complex.
Philosophy, although fundamental to our view of patient care, can be questioned and debated, has a tendency to lead to divergence, and cannot be presented as a logical argument to a jury. Science, on the other hand, has a greater impact because of proofs that, over time, become indisputable facts. Facts are undeniable from any perspective. As the old saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Or to put it more precisely, the visual image speaks a thousand words. It is solid, visual proof. Graphs and charts, being visual mediums, provide very formidable and convincing evidence when proving facts. Everyone can see the visual representation of the data, and agree on the meaning of the image.
