The aim of this project was to combine empirical evidence and expert opinion in a formal consensus method to develop a tool to be used in systematic reviews to assess the quality of primary studies of diagnostic accuracy.
Bivariate analysis of sensitivity and specificity produces informative summary measures in diagnostic reviews.
The diagnostic odds ratio: a single indicator of test performance.
Empirical evidence of design-related bias in studies of diagnostic tests.
These data provide empirical evidence that diagnostic studies with methodological shortcomings may overestimate the accuracy of a diagnostic test, particularly those including nonrepresentative patients or applying different reference standards.
Towards complete and accurate reporting of studies of diagnostic accuracy: the STARD initiative
If medical journals adopt the STARD checklist and flow diagram, the quality of reporting of studies of diagnostic accuracy should improve to the advantage of clinicians, researchers, reviewers, journals, and the public.
