Flexible Bayesian Methods for Diagnosis and Roc Curve Estimation (Hardcover) (Vanda Calhau Fernandes
about this item
Offering a detailed and careful explanation of the methods, this book delineates Bayesian non parametric techniques to be used in health care and the statistical evaluation of diagnostic tests to determine accuracy before mass use in practice. Unique to these methods is the incorporation of prior information and elimination of subjective beliefs and asymptotic results. It includes examples such as ROC curves and ROC surfaces estimation, modeling of multivariate diagnostic data, absence of a perfect test, ROC regression methodology, and sample size determination.
