Please DO NOT use any other print method. Test Messages : Scoring Category: Objective Pain Patient Interpretation: Based on the above score, the claimant is categorized as an Objective Pain Patient. The PVT was originally validated on 796 chronic pain patients, with the results published in seven peer-reviewed articles in medical and other journals. As documented in the most recent of
  • these articles, 95% of the time claimants categorized as Objective PainPatients by the PVT will have moderate or severe pathology correspondingto their complaint of chronic pain on at lease one objective diagnostic testor laboratory study such as an MRI, EMG, nerve velocity conductionstudy, facet blocks, peripheral nerve blocks, root blocks, neuromter (CPT),myelogram, CT, 3D-CT, provocative discogram, X-ray or bone scan, andother tests.Recommendation: It is recommended that the Diagnostic Paradigm (DP)and Treatment Algorithm (TA) be administered to this patient. This isbecause 40%-67% of chronic pain patients are misdiagnosed. The DP&TAprovides diagnoses, for the source of the pain experienced by patients whohave real medical problems but are not getting well. The DP&TA has a95% correlation with diagnoses of Johns Hopkins Hospital staff members.It also outlines the most appropriate courses of diagnostic studies andtreatments for such patients. These treatment algorithms begin with theleast expensive and least invasive diagnostic test and treatments and thenprogress through a series of increasingly complex diagnostic tests andtreatments. By following the recommended course of tests and treatments,treating physicians can expect results comparable to those obtained at oneof the countrys leading pain clinics.These results are intended to provide information that will assist an insurer or other payerin evaluating a claim. They should not be used as the sole basis for accepting or denying aclaim. The test results do not constitute medical advice or a diagnosis, and the test is notintended to be a substitute for a medical examination. Test users should exercise their ownprofessional judgment when evaluating the usefulness of the test results.To print results, please use only the "Printable Version" print button at thebottom of this page.
