In this attached paper, I discuss that experience plays an important role in validating the verification of a diagnostic hypothesis by a test result. As our experience is gained from a heterogenous population of patients with varying prior probabilities, this validation is represented by a confidence and not by a Bayesian argument.
Please review and comment on this paper.
Thanks.
