Abstract

diagt displays various summary statistics for a diagnostic test, compared to patients' true disease status, sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values, from a 2x2 table. diagti is the immediate version. #a #b #c #d are, respectively, the numbers of true positives (diseased subjects with correct positive test results), false negatives (disease, but negative test), false positives (no disease, but positive test) and true negatives (no disease, negative test). Version 2 of the software now includes an immediate version, diagti.
