Statistics review 13: receiver operating characteristic curves


, : Statistics review 13: receiver operating characteristic curves. Critical Care 8(6): 508-512

This review introduces some commonly used methods for assessing the performance of a diagnostic test. The sensitivity, specificity and likelihood ratio of a test are discussed. The uses of the receiver operating characteristic curve and the area under the curve are explained.

The germination and seedling survival of V. radiata decreased following seed treatment with increasing MH conc. (0.005-0.01 M), gamma -irradiation doses (10-90 kR) and irradiation + 0.0075 M MH. However, the combined effect of irradiation + MH was...

We have defined a coordinate program of transcription of S-phase genes (DNA polymerase alpha, PCNA and the two ribonucleotide reductase subunits) that can be induced by the G-1 cyclin, cyclin E. In Drosophila embryos, this program drives an intric...
