What is the probability that a patient with a sore throat has strep? How about the likelihood of DVT in a patient with leg symptoms? What is the prognosis for patients with melanoma, pneumonia, or breat cancer? Covering a full range of topics from cardiovascular and pulmonary disease to ophthalmology, hematology and pediatrics, EVIDENCE-BASED DIAGNOSIS is the only single volume, quick reference designed for use in daily practice. Containing over 150 clinical prediction rules as well as need-to-know background information on each rule to determine its validity and relevance for your practice, these rules are essential for every physician in a time of limited health care resources. Designed as an aid in diagnosis and treatment, clinical prediction rules will allow you to make more accurate diagnosis and treatment decisions while eliminating superfluous testing. Mark H. Ebell, M.D., M.S. is Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice at Michigan State University. He is editor of the "Journal of Family Practice" and coeditor of the "Evidence-Based Practice" newsletter, and is the author of over 80 peer-reviewed publications.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Evidence-Based Diagnosis is succinctly and authoritatively written. It includes an excellent summary of the principles of Bayesian statistics . . I have no doubt that Ebell's set of accessible prediction rules will help busy clinicians use best evidence more frequently and more systematically in the clinic and at the bedside."
