"The Language of Algorithms," by Dean S. Hartley III, pp. 15-31.

Algorithms are used to describe the steps used in deciding treatments. Algorithms are most often diagrammed as flow charts, with decisions leading to procedures and further decisions.  However, several other diagram types, or "languages," are appropriate in emphasizing different aspects of the algorithm.  Gantt charts, influence diagrams, and decision trees are described as alternatives.
