What does clinical correlation entail?

Do the Findings fit? Clinical correlation simply means being sure the findings or test results fit the patients complaints and diagnoses. Sometimes we may see things on a test, which don't correlate, or make sense, when we look at the patients complaint. Are the findings "clinically correlated" with the complaint? If not, they may likely be unimportant. It keeps us from chasing our tails with unneeded testing.
