Third, since no verification process is performed, the extraction of the signatures is certain to involve high false-positive
Most Medicaid undercount research has focused on false-negative error rather than false-positive
error since it is a larger component of the undercount.
(3) reported another case of false-positive
FDG uptake in the non-paralytic vocal cord.
The results showed the cancer-detection rate was significantly higher in the DBT group than the DM group, and the false-positive
rate was significantly lower in the DBT group compared with the DM group.
blood cultures in the setting of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have been rarely described in the literature [6-8].
Commercial testing facility Laboratory Corporation of America (LabCorp) has reported a greater-than-expected number of false-positive
results from the ZIKV Detect test.
"The reason this apparent false-positive
rate from this study is so high is mostly because the Kepler team has been very generous with the last few data releases with what has been called a 'candidate'," Morton says.
In the article, "Urine drug screens: When might a test be false-positive
?", it was noted that false positives in immunoassays are rare, but that those involving opiates and amphetamines were more common than cocaine-metabolite and cannabinoid false positives.
The test correctly identifies about 80 percent of women who are carrying a baby with Down syndrome and has a false-positive
rate of about five percent.
The percentage of consumers affected by false-positive
declines is three times greater than the percentage affected by card fraud, with a total of USD118 billion incorrectly declined in 2014, compared to just USD9.0 billion lost to card fraud.
uptake of F18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) on positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) can result in confusion and misinterpretation of scans.
Other potential causes for false-positive
urine pregnancy test results include tubo-ovarian abscess, (6) adenomyosis, (7) and cancers that produce hCG, such as colon, pancreatic, lung, liver, and urothelial bladder carcinoma.
