• This work overviews some developments on the estimation of the Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve. Estimation methods in this area are constantly being developed, adjusted and extended, and it is thus impossible to cover all topics and areas of application in a single paper. Here, we focus on some frequentist and Bayesian methods which have been mostly employed in the medical setting. Although we emphasize the medical domain, we also describe links with other fields where related… Expand

This paper discusses and compares estimation procedures for the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve based on the Mann-Whitney statistic; kernel smoothing; normal assumptions; empirical transformations to normality; and compares these in terms of bias and root mean square error.

Bayesian semi-parametric ROC analysis.

- Mathematics, Medicine
- Statistics in medicine

A semi-parametric Bayesian approach for estimating receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves based on mixtures of Dirichlet process priors (MDP) and it is shown that MDP modelling for ROC curve estimation closely parallels the frequentist kernel density estimation (KDE) approach. Expand

A Bayesian hierarchical approach to multirater correlated ROC analysis.

- Computer Science, Medicine

A Bayesian hierarchical model is described that facilitates the analysis of this study design by explicitly modelling the three sources of variation inherent to it and achieves substantial reductions in the posterior uncertainty associated with estimates of the differences in areas under the estimated ROC curves.
