BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE A range of fixed-effect and random-effects meta-analytic methods are available to obtain summary estimates of measures of diagnostic test accuracy. The hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic (HSROC) model proposed by Rutter and Gatsonis in 2001 represents a general framework for the meta-analysis of diagnostic test studies that allows different parameters to be defined as a fixed effect or random effects within the same model. The Bayesian method used… CONTINUE READING
