Likelihood Ratios for the Emergency Physician.
Acad Emerg Med. 2018 Apr 26;:
Authors: Peng P, Coyle A
The concept of likelihood ratios was introduced more than 40 years ago, yet this powerful metric has still not seen wider application or discussion in the medical decision-making process. There is concern that clinicians-in-training are still being taught an over-simplified approach to diagnostic test performance, and have limited exposure to likelihood ratios. Even for those familiar with likelihood ratios, they might perceive them as mathematically-cumbersome in application, if not difficult to determine for a particular disease process.
