Clinical Decisions — Track the Results

Posted by • October 22nd, 2008

A record number of readers voted on our latest Clinical Decisions interactive feature, where we described a fictional case of a college basketball player with a large red welt on his buttock. We provided three independent treatment opinions, and we invited you to select which you favored. Over 11,000 votes were cast, the most since we launched the series. We also invited you to contribute to an online discussion of the case on We were struck by how differently you approached this common symptom. You can read a summary of the responses, and check out an interactive map that shows how physicians around the globe voted, on our Clinical Decisions results page. If you haven’t seen them already, visit some of our earlier Clinical Decisions on the management of Type 2 diabetes, stable coronary disease, and the treatment of mild persistent asthma.
