Does the clinical context improve the reliability of rheumatologists grading digital ulcers (DU) in systemic sclerosis?

 

The overall intra and inter–rater reliability of DU grading did not significantly improve with the clinical context and agreement between patients and rheumatologists was poor. PubMed, Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken), 01/08/2016. (Also see Digital Ulcers)
