Abstract

Excessive diagnostic testing rarely leads to complete certainty of the disease status of a patient. Because of constraints of health care budgets, physicians should be aware of the diminishing marginal gain of each subsequent test in a testing strategy related to costs. We developed the probability-modifying plot to determine economically efficient sequence… (More)
