The Bayes nomogram that appeared in the glossary of Evidence-Based Medicine in the Jul/Aug, Sep/Oct, and Nov/Dec 1999 issues should not be used because it contains 2 errors:

  • The likelihood ratio scale is imperfectly drawn giving inaccurate readings in parts of the nomogram

  • The lower 500 on the likelihood ratio scale should be 200

A correct version of the nomogram can be viewed on Best Evidence.
