STATISTICAL FEATURES

ROC CURVE ANAYLSIS

MedCalc is the reference software for ROC curve analysis. ROC curve analysis module includes:

  • Area Under the Curve (AUC) with standard error, 95% confidence interval, P-value. Offers choice between methodology of DeLong et al. (1988) and Hanley & McNeil (1982, 1983).
  • List of sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratios, and positive and negative predictive values for all possible threshold values.
  • ROC curve graph with 95% Confidence Bounds.
  • Threshold values can be selected in an interactive dot diagram with automatic calculation of corresponding sensitivity and specificity.
  • Plot of sensitivity and specificity, or cost, versus criterion values.
  • Plot of predictive values versus prevalence.
  • Interval likelihood ratios.
  • Comparison of up to 6 ROC curves: difference between the areas under the ROC curves, with standard error, 95% confidence interval and P-value.
  • Sample size calculation for area under ROC curve and comparison of ROC curves.

Go to the ROC curve analysis section of the MedCalc manual for more information on ROC curve analysis in MedCalc.
