Abstract Clinical accuracy, defined as the ability to discriminate between states of health, is the fundamental property of any diagnostic test or system. It is readily expressed as clinical sensitivity and specificity, and elegantly represented by the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve. To demonstrate the use of ROC curves, we reexamine a study of the ability of serum lipid and apolipoprotein measures to discriminate among degrees of coronary artery disease in patients undergoing coronary angiography. ROC curve analysis reveals that none of these indexes is highly accurate, but demonstrates a modest increase in the accuracy of apolipoprotein over lipid indexes. © 1992 The American Association for Clinical Chemistry « Previous | Next Article » Table of Contents This Article Clinical Chemistry August 1992 vol. 38 no. 8 1425-1428 » Abstract PDF Services Email this article to a friend Alert me when this article is cited Alert me if a correction is posted Similar articles in this journal Similar articles in Web of Science Similar articles in PubMed Download to citation manager Responses No responses published Citing Articles Load citing article information Citing articles via Web of Science Citing articles via Google Scholar Google Scholar Articles by Zweig, M.
