About

Diagnostic research in the past focused particularly on estimating the sensitivity and specificity of individual diagnostic tests. This online Advanced Diagnostic Research course from Utrecht University will demonstrate that this so called ‘test research’ is not necessarily the same as diagnostic research.

Overview

Key Features

Furthermore, the Advanced Diagnostic Research course from Utrecht University will widen the horizon by proposing modern methods of diagnostic research and data analysis in which a patient’s test result can and should be considered in the context of other patient characteristics or test results. These methods enable:

  • direct estimation of individual probabilities of disease presence based on all diagnostic information and 
  • evaluation of the extent to which a particular diagnostic test has true added value in the clinical context. 

Also, conventional and advanced methods for systematic reviews of diagnostic tests will be presented.

At the end of this course, you'll should be able to:
  • Describe the principles and design of primary diagnostic studies
  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches in primary diagnostic studies

  • Describe the methods for data collection in the different study designs of primary diagnostic studies
  • Explain the differences between different design and analytical approaches in primary diagnostic studies
