OBJECTIVE To develop and compare two mathematical models, the first one based on logistic regression and the second one on fuzzy sets theory, aiming at defining a laboratory testing-based measure of indication for submitting patients to parathyroid scintigraphy. METHODS One-hundred and ninety-four patients with serum calcium and parathyroid hormone available were identified from the data registry of parathyroid scintigraphy of a diagnostic laboratory in São Paulo, Southern Brazil, in the… CONTINUE READING
