Abstract

The authors describe the development of a reporting aid for parathyroid hormone (PTH) measurements. The system is based on a combination of practice statements from experienced endocrinologists and data collected from 1576 medical records. The PTH test results are categorized into compartments based on the concentration of creatinine, calcium and parathyroid hormone. Within compartments, the relative frequencies of various diagnoses are tabulated along with information on how additional clinical parameters and laboratory tests affect the relative frequencies.
