Abstract: No single clinical finding can accurately diagnose DVT. [Strength of recommendation: A, based on a systematic review of homogeneous validating cohort studies with good reference standards.] However, when organized into clinical decision rules (CDRs), clinical findings can reliably differentiate patients into categories of low, moderate, or high probability of having DVT. [Strength of recommendation: A, based on numerous studies of CDRs from different clinical centers.]
