    Significance and Use

    4.2 Clinical PDD examinations are specifically intended to assist in the detection, treatment, or supervision of sex offenders.

    4.3 Clinical PDD testing should be regarded as a decision-support tool intended to assist professionals in making important decisions regarding risk and safety assessments. Clinical PDD testing should not replace the need for other forms of behavioral monitoring or traditional forms of supervision and field investigations.
