There are many things to consider to choose the appropriate
meta-analytic approach for diagnostic test evaluation.

You do not even allude to critical and needed info on the nature of
the problem; therefore I dare suggest your seeking advice from someone
with some expertise in clinical research methodology (most
importantly) and meta-analysis (secondarily).

That being said you can do a lot in Stata for meta-analysis of Dx
tests. Searching the archive would be very helpful.
