Clinician suspicion minimally accurate for lyme disease
from HealthDay News
Clinician suspicion has minimal accuracy for the diagnosis of Lyme disease, according to a study published online in Pediatrics. For the study, researchers assembled a prospective cohort of children aged 1 to 21 years evaluated for Lyme disease to examine the accuracy of clinician suspicion. Treating clinicians were asked to estimate the probability of Lyme disease, and the ability of clinician suspicion to diagnose Lyme disease was calculated as the area under the curve for the receiver operating curve.
