The 2017 tool ESTIMATES your patient’s risk of biopsy-proven giant cell arteritis (GCA) based on a 10 variable logistic regression analysis of 530 patients who underwent temporal artery biopsy. It should be used at the discretion of the individual clinician. When interpreting the output probability score, we encourage you to review the cutpoint table. We assume NO liability in the use of this app.
