Explanation: Sandy, I do suspect you're completely off track here. The Italian text is saying "the amount of time that elapsed from noticing the first symptoms to the medical tests being undertaken"
"accertamento" is *not* a definitive diagnosis, it's a test, from the verb "accertare", to verify, assess or test.
Whereas the diagnostic values of VEP and OB were both in the same range, the combination of both methods increased the proportion of cases with "definite MS" from 58 to 75%, whereas CT did not contribute significantly to **diagnostic ascertainment**.
In this, part 2 of the histopathologic approach to the diagnosis of metabolic disease of the liver, the steatotic, cirrhotic, and neoplastic groups are addressed. See the previous issue, Volume 1, Number 3, of Pediatric and Developmental Pathology for part 1 . The perspective concludes with a tabulated assessment of the likelihood of **diagnostic ascertainment**.
