likehood ratio

likehood ratio

Decision making The frequency that a test result is positive in subjects with–as opposed to without–a disease of interest; LR is a method for evaluating the informational properties of a nonbinary test Screening The relative odds that a given test result is expected in a Pt with–vs without–a disease of interest. Cf ROC curve.

De esta manera, se consideraron los siguientes indicadores: sensibilidad (S), especificidad (E), valor predictivo positivo (VPP), valor predictivo negativo (VPN), area ROC (area bajo la receiver operating characteristic curve), cociente de probabilidad positivo (CPP) o Likehood Ratio positivo (LR +) y cociente de probabilidad negativo (CPN) o Likehood Ratio negativo (LR -).
With high likehood ratio given level might serve as a support.
