Abstract

The issue of this review is diagnostic accuracy studies by means of which it can be determined how precisely a test can identify patients with or without a given target condition. Diagnostic accuracy studies vary substantially in design but usually report outcome measures such as sensitivity and specificity. Diagnostic accuracy studies can be critically appraised by using QUADAS-2. Some study characteristics to consider is the avoidance of a case-control study design, patient selection, and the reference standard. Also, the statistical imprecision and the applicability of a study to a general population are essential factors to consider.
