Interobserver diagnostic variability at "moderate" agreement levels could significantly change the prognostic estimates of clinicopathologic studies: evaluation of the problem using evidence from patients with diffuse lung disease.

Abstract

Does interobserver diagnostic variability (IODV) influence the accuracy of prognostic estimates of clinicopathologic studies? "Best evidence" from usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) and nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) patients was used to investigate the effects of IODV. Systematic literature review identified studies of UIP and NSIP providing… (More)
