DiTA - Diagnostic Test Accuracy

The PEDro Partnership (Institute for Musculoskeletal Health, School of Public Health at The University of Sydney) initiated and now maintains the Diagnostic Test Accuracy database (DiTA).

DiTA is a free database that indexes primary studies of diagnostic test accuracy and systematic reviews of diagnostic test accuracy studies related to physiotherapy practice. DiTA has been designed to enable clinicians, researchers and patients to easily access information on the accuracy of diagnostic tests used by physiotherapists and is hosted by Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA).

Vision and mission

The mission of the Partnership is to maximise the effectiveness of physiotherapy services by facilitating the clinical application of the best available evidence.

How DiTA can help

DiTA provides citation details, abstracts and links to full-text for each indexed study or review.

Users can browse the latest guidelines, reviews and trials in their area of interest by subscribing to DiTA “Evidence in your inbox.”
