A great deal of knowledge and skill is required to practise Studies reveal three main reasons: as a doctor. But how doctors think, reason and make decisions Box 1.
However, this chapter or clinical reasoning. For every diagnostic error there are ability to make decisions often with others based on all the a number of root causes. Studies of misdiagnosis assign three available clinical information, starting with the history and physical main categories, shown in Box 1.

Acad Med ; — Shared Using and 1. Similarly, an LR of less than 1 Clinical skills and decision-making decreases the probability of disease. LRs are developed against 1 a diagnostic standard e. Studies show that physicians make a diagnosis in of a disease.
For example, an LR of around 1 does not change this. In one prospective study, Use and interpretation of they had likelihood ratios of around 1, meaning they carried little diagnostic tests diagnostic weight Fig. Likelihood ratios LR are clinical diagnostic weights. An LR of There is no such thing as a perfect diagnostic test. Test results greater than 1 increases the probability of disease the higher the give us test probabilities, not real probabilities.
This means Nuchal rigidity 0. For this reason, 0. In some diseases there is no overlap between results from the abnormal and normal population. However, in many Zero diseases there is overlap; in these circumstances, the greater Fig. Normal, to some extent, is therefore arbitrary. Normal 1. For many tests, placenta the frequency distribution of results in the normal healthy population Raised D-dimer physiological changes in the red line is a symmetrical bell-shaped curve.
For some diseases ECG changes tachycardia, left axis deviation blue line , test results overlap with the normal population or even with the Sex Males and females have different reference ranges reference range. For other diseases green line , tests may be more for many tests, e.
A negative result will therefore reliably exclude disease but a positive result does not mean Tests are also subject to operating characteristics.
This refers the disease is present — it means further evaluation is required. Some tests are when the result is positive. On the other hand, a cut-off point of 2. A normal EEG therefore does not ST depression would detect most cases of important coronary exclude epilepsy. This trade-off is who do not have epilepsy have epileptiform discharges on their illustrated by the receiver operating characteristic curve of the EEG.

The answer is at the end of the chapter. However, as doctors, we Sensitivity. Post-test probability and predictive values are different. Post- test probability is the probability of a disease after taking into 0.
The pre-test probability of disease is decided by the 1. Predictive value is the proportion of patients Fig. This is important to realise because published then plotting these against each other.
