Diagnosis - The Beauty and the Beast
Mark Graber
Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine
[email protected]

Diagnosis is perhaps the most complicated cognitive task humans face. Despite the many challenges involved, the correct diagnosis is established in the great majority of cases, thanks in very large part to advances in medical testing, such as mass spectrometry. At the same time, diagnostic errors are too common and cause enormous harm. The origins of diagnostic errors will be explored, providing insights that can improve not only diagnosis, but the decisions we make in our everyday lives and research enterprises.
