DVT clinical prediction rule(s)

I have mentioned the Wells Clinical Prediction Rule for DVT’s before in a previous post.  The prediction rule is for secondary settings, but there was a recent interesting study mentioned in the daily Medscape newsletter comparing Wells to the Primary Care Rule.  As PT’s we don’t have access to dimer testing, so for now Wells is our best option.
