In the attached short note, I point out we do not know about the diagnostic accuracy of the Bayesian method despite its prescription for diagnosis for over 50 years. I suggest the prescription of this method cannot be justified in absence of data about its diagnostic accuracy.
Please review and comment on this note.
Thanks.
