Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This, the first of a two-part series on the clinical evaluation of diagnostic imaging tests, presents the tools used to evaluate the information content of diagnostic tests; decision matrices and their derived ratios, Bayes theorem, and receiver operating characteristic curves. Examples of determinations of sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, probability, and predictive value demonstrate their usefulness to clinicans selecting diagnostic tests for a given situation.
