Yeah, you're not fingerprinting my prostate...

Let me be serious. I can't stand reports that include the word "could." XYZ could accomplish ABC also means that XYZ could NOT accomplish ABC. How about reporting how many true positives/true negatives/false positives/false negatives were found using this new strategy compared to a comparison population that used the old technology. Random assignment to new vs old technology would be nice. Reports of adverse outcomes is imperative. Cost analysis should be included.
A report that Dr. Jones is very enthusiastic about the potential of the Jones test is not helpful. Give us the actual numbers. By actual numbers I mean just that; no reporting of a percentage of improvement that always overstates the benefits.

I once went to a rural Michigan hospital with a fishhook through my thumb. The doctor was a woman about 30, fit, and very attractive in a wholesome way.

When I saw her, I  changed my story, saying my prostate could use a good exam. The nurse ratted me out and pointed out my thumb to the doctor, dammit.
