Use of likelihood ratios for comparisons of binary diagnostic tests: underlying ROC curves.

Abstract

PURPOSE When comparing binary test results from two diagnostic systems, superiority in both "sensitivity" and "specificity" also implies differences in all conventional summary indices and locally in the underlying receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curves. However, when one of the two binary tests has higher sensitivity and lower specificity (or vice… (More)
