Granularity Explains Empirical Factor-of-Three Relation Between Probabilities of Pulmonary Embolism in Different Patient Categories

Abstract

Pulmonary embolism is a very dangerous difficult-to-detect medical condition. To diagnose pulmonary embolism, medical practitioners combine indirect signs of this condition into a single score, and then classify patients into low-probability, intermediate-probability, and high-probability categories. Empirical analysis shows that, when we move from each… (More)
