STARD 2015: an updated list of essential items for reporting diagnostic accuracy studies
TLDR
STARD 2015 is presented, an updated list of 30 essential items that should be included in every report of a diagnostic accuracy study, which incorporates recent evidence about sources of bias and variability in diagnostic accuracy. Expand
A call for transparent reporting to optimize the predictive value of preclinical research
TLDR
The main workshop recommendation is that at a minimum studies should report on sample-size estimation, whether and how animals were randomized, whether investigators were blind to the treatment, and the handling of data. Expand
STARD 2015: An Updated List of Essential Items for Reporting Diagnostic Accuracy Studies.
TLDR
An updated list of 30 essential items that should be included in every report of a diagnostic accuracy study is presented, which incorporates recent evidence about sources of bias and variability in diagnostic accuracy and is intended to facilitate the use of STARD. Expand
Screening Primary Care Patients for Hereditary Hemochromatosis with Transferrin Saturation and Serum Ferritin Level: Systematic Review for the American College of Physicians
TLDR
Little evidence was available to support the efficacy of genetic testing, and there were substantial ethical, legal, and social concerns on the benefits and risks of a screening intervention program in the United States. Expand
Accuracy of viscera slide detection of abdominal wall adhesions by ultrasound
Viscera slide is the normal, longitudinal movement of the intraabdominal viscera caused by respiratory excursions of the diaphragm. By detecting areas of restricted viscera slide, ultrasonic imagingExpand
Cost minimization study of image-guided core biopsy versus surgical excisional biopsy for women with abnormal mammograms.
TLDR
Image-guided core biopsy can be cost-saving compared with surgical biopsy, particularly when the mammographic abnormality is classified as low suspicion or consists of calcifications or masses, and overall for patients who underwent lumpectomy alone. Expand
Meta-analysis as evidence: building a better pyramid.
TLDR
Limits of meta-analysis as a study design preclude consistently placing this evidence at the top of the pyramid, and a number of issues need to be resolved before that can happen. Expand
Technique of ultrasonic detection and mapping of abdominal wall adhesions
TLDR
The technique may be particularly useful in providing safe initial access in patients undergoing laparoscopy who are at increased risk for trocar injury of viscera due to abdominal wall adhesions resulting from previous surgery or peritonitis. Expand
Reporting guidelines for clinical trial reports for interventions involving artificial intelligence: the CONSORT-AI Extension
TLDR
The CONSORT-AI extension is a new reporting guideline for clinical trials evaluating interventions with an AI component that recommends that investigators provide clear descriptions of the AI intervention, including instructions and skills required for use, the setting in which theAI intervention is integrated and providing analysis of error cases.
