Normal Ranges Dependant On: Population Demographics Environment Analytical Method
Population Demographics Gender Age Ethnicity
Environment Cultural aspects Geographic locations
Analytical Methods Reagents Procedures Temp Analytical Variables
Diagnostic Sensitivity frequency of abnormal or positive test results in individuals who have a selected disease
Specificity frequency with which a normal or negative test result is observed in individuals free of disease
predictive value is a measure of whether an abnormal test result really indicates that the patient has a particular disease or whether a normal test result correctly excludes the existance of a disease in the patient
Efficiency of test described as the probability that a test reslt, whether positive or negative, correctly classifies the presence or absence of disease
%Sensitivity = TP / (TP+FN)
%Specificity = TN / (FP+TN)
%Positve Predictive value = TP / (TP+FP)
%Negative Predictive Value = TN / (TN+FN)
% Efficiency = (TP+TN) / (TP+FP+FN+TN)
