The following message was submitted to the listserv by Rosemary Grefe <RGrefe at childrensnational.org>.
Here is an abstract of an article about the inconsistency of the diagnostic testing done in our area. <https://www.academicpedsjnl.net/article/S1876-2859(11)00316-0/fulltext <https://www.academicpedsjnl.net/article/S1876-2859(11)00316-0/fulltext>> The test that is discussed in this article is the simplest of all of the tests done by our service and yet, when done by untrained or poorly trained staff, the results are not reliable.
