Computer-Assisted Diagnostic Interview (CADI) uses the computer to assist, enhance and improve Traditional Diagnostic Interview (TDI). CADI was first presented at the APA's annual meeting in 1996. CADI modifies both data collection and data processing. It occupies a place between the less-than-reliable TDI and the reliable but time-consuming structured interview like the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM (SCID).
