st: comparison of diagnostic procedures
i would like to ask you about the following problem:
i have one variable which represents if the patient has the disease (coding: 0-
1)--and this is standard.
Additionally i have 12 more variables which represents the outcome of 12
different diagnostic procedures (coding: 0-1 for all of them).I want to find
which is the best diagnostic procedure. I calculate the sensitivity and
specificity and their confidence intervals for each of them. If the confidence
interval for the sensitivity of one diagnostic procedure do not overlap the
confidence interval for the Se of another diagnostic procedure then the
difference is significant.
Is there any test to perform and give p_value? Is there a need to make a
correction for multiple comparisons.?
I will appreciate it if somebody help me!
thanks a lot!
