Assessment of the Diagnostic Accuracy of Laboratory Tests Using Receiver Operating Characteristic Curves, 2nd Edition
This document provides a protocol for evaluating the accuracy of a test to discriminate between two subclasses of subjects when there is some clinically relevant reason to separate them.
