As you know I have been interested in understanding the errors of all the "tests" that we use to diagnose clinical conditions. We have little idea of many of the degrees of error in different people's hands. What is the impact of all these errors on accurate diagnoses, and do we need to know about the issue/problem? Is there even a problem? Do we need to fix these at the same time we are refining diagnostic processes?
Also, others (specialty societies mainly) define certain conditions for us. I have often wondered how accurate these recommendations are. The renal failure categories for example and is there ever a financial influence at play? Have we ever looked at these in some organized fashion?
