ROC curve analysis

Area under the curve (AUC) with standard error, 95% confidence interval, P-value. Offers choice between methodology of DeLong et al. (1988) and Hanley & McNeil (1982, 1983).

List of sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratios, and positive and negative predictive values for all possible threshold values.

ROC curve graph with 95% Confidence Bounds.

Threshold values can be selected in an interactive dot diagram with automatic calculation of corresponding sensitivity and specificity.

Plot of sensitivity and specificity versus criterion values.

Interval likelihood ratios.

Comparison of up to 6 ROC curves: difference between the areas under the ROC curves, with standard error, 95% confidence interval and P-value.

Sample size calculation for area under ROC curve and comparison of ROC curves.
