EVIDENCE TO SUPPORTMoore, JH, Goss, DL, et al. Clinical diagnostic accuracy and magnetic resonance imaging of patients referred by physical therapists, orthopaedic surgeons, and non orthopedic providers. JOSPT. 2005;35;65-71.

  • A study performed in the U.S. Army compared the Clinical Diagnostic Accuracy (CDA) of PTs, Orthopedic Surgeons, and Non-orthopedic providers in patients with musculoskeletal impairments.

  • Authors found PTs had a higher CDA (75%) versus non-orthopedic providers (35%), but no significant difference between PTs and Orthopedic Surgeons.

  • Authors stated PTs are capable of making accurate musculoskeletal diagnoses and these decisions can be made without a physician referral.
