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.
