Why is the prescribed Bayesian method not employed for diagnosis in practice

In this attached paper, I discuss that the prescribed Bayesian method is not employed for diagnosis in practice because this method has been prescribed on grounds of its rationality defined as not losing a bet when a Bayesian diagnosis is looked upon as placing a bet. This reason for prescription has no relevance to diagnostic accuracy in a given, individual patient which is our main concern in practice and therefore this method is not employed.
Could someone give me a reference to a published CPC or a clinical problem solving exercise in which the Bayesian method was employed for diagnosis as I am unable to find such an exercise?
Please review and comment on this paper.
