Abstract

While textbooks on evidence-based medicine still mainly focus on accuracy studies as most appropriate level of evidence for diagnostic questions, the guideline developers have moved forward to patient important outcomes. In other words, a perfect test may still be useless if it does not change clinical decisions and outcomes for patients. What is the current state of evidence-based diagnostics and how can this be translated to different veterinary situations?
