# ggplotFROC: Draw FROC curves by two parameters a and b In BayesianFROC: FROC Analysis by Bayesian Approaches

## Description

Plot FROC curves based on two parameters a and b.

## Usage

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10``` ```ggplotFROC( a, b, mesh.for.drawing.curve = 10000, upper_x = 1, upper_y = 1, lower_y = 0, dataList, StanS4class ) ```

## Arguments

`a`

An arbitrary real number. It is no need to require any assumption, but I use such as `a`=μ/σ, where μ is a mean of signal distribution and σ is its standard deviation in the bi-normal assumption.

`b`

An arbitrary positive real number. I use such as `b`=1/σ, where σ is a standard deviation of signal distribution in the bi-noraml assumption.

`mesh.for.drawing.curve`

A positive large integer, indicating number of dots drawing the curves, Default =10000.

`upper_x`

A positive real number, indicating the frame size of drawing picture.

`upper_y`

A positive real number, indicating the frame size of drawing picture.

`lower_y`

A positive real number, indicating the frame size of drawing picture.

`dataList`

A list, specifying an FROC data to be fitted a model. It consists of data of numbers of TPs, FPs, lesions, images. .In addition, if in case of mutiple readers or mutiple modalities, then modaity ID and reader ID are included also.

The `dataList` will be passed to the function `rstan::``sampling`() of rstan. This is a variable in the function `rstan::sampling()` in which it is named `data`.

For the single reader and a single modality data, the `dataList` is made by the following manner:

` dataList.Example <- list( `

` h = c(41,22,14,8,1), # number of hits for each confidence level `

` f = c(1,2,5,11,13), # number of false alarms for each confidence level `

` NL = 124, # number of lesions (signals) `

` NI = 63, # number of images (trials) `

` C = 5) # number of confidence, .. the author thinks it can be calculated as the length of h or f ...? ha, why I included this. ha .. should be omitted. `

Using this object `dataList.Example`, we can apply `fit_Bayesian_FROC()` such as `fit_Bayesian_FROC(dataList.Example)`.

To make this R object `dataList` representing FROC data, this package provides three functions:

` convertFromJafroc()`

If data is a JAFROC xlsx formulation.

` dataset_creator_new_version()`

Enter TP and FP data by table .

` create_dataset()`

Enter TP and FP data by interactive manner.

Before fitting a model, we can confirm our dataset is correctly formulated by using the function ` viewdata()`.

—————————————————————————————-

A Single reader and a single modality (SRSC) case.

—————————————————————————————-

In a single reader and a single modality case (srsc), `dataList` is a list consisting of `f, h, NL, NI, C` where `f, h` are numeric vectors and `NL, NI, C` are positive integers.

`f`

Non-negative integer vector specifying number of false alarms associated with each confidence level. The first component corresponding to the highest confidence level.

`h`

Non-negative integer vector specifying number of Hits associated with each confidence level. The first component corresponding to the highest confidence level.

`NL`

A positive integer, representing Number of Lesions.

`NI`

A positive integer, representing Number of Images.

`C`

A positive integer, representing Number of Confidence level.

The detail of these dataset, see the datasets endowed with this package. 'Note that the maximal number of confidence level, denoted by `C`, are included, however, Note that confidence level vector `c ` should not be specified. If specified, will be ignored , since it is created by ` c <-c(rep(C:1))` in the inner program and do not refer from user input data, where `C` is the highest number of confidence levels. So, you should write down your hits and false alarms vector so that it is compatible with this automatically created `c` vector.

* false alarms = False Positives = FP

* hits = True Positives = TP

Note that in FROC data, all confidence level means present (diseased, lesion) case only, no confidence level indicating absent. Since each reader marks his suspicious location only if he thinks lesions are present, and marked positions generates the hits or false alarms, thus each confidence level represents that lesion is present. In the absent case, reader does not mark any locations and hence, the absent confidence level does not relate this dataset. So, if reader think it is no lesion, then in such case confidence level is not needed.

Note that the first column of confidence level vector `c ` should not be specified. If specified, will be ignored , since it is created by ` c <-c(rep(C:1))` automatically in the inner program and do not refer from user input data even if it is specified explicitly, where `C` is the highest number of confidence levels. So you should check the compatibility of your data and the confidence level vector ` c <-c(rep(C:1))` via a table which can be displayed by the function `viewdata()`.

Multiple readers and multiple modalities case, i.e., MRMC case

—————————————————————————————

In case of multiple readers and multiple modalities, i.e., MRMC case, in order to apply the function `fit_Bayesian_FROC()`, dataset represented by an R list object representing FROC data must contain components `m,q,c,h,f,NL,C,M,Q`.

`C `

A positive integer, representing the highest number of confidence level, this is a scalar.

`M `

A positive integer vector, representing the number of modalities.

`Q `

A positive integer, representing the number of readers.

`m `

A vector of positive integers, representing the modality ID vector.

`q `

A vector of positive integers, representing the reader ID vector.

`c `

A vector of positive integers, representing the confidence level. This vector must be made by `rep(rep(C:1), M*Q)`

`h `

A vector of non-negative integers, representing the number of hits.

`f `

A vector of non-negative integers, representing the number of false alarms.

`NL`

A positive integer, representing the Total number of lesions for all images, this is a scalar.

Note that the maximal number of confidence level (denoted by `C`) are included in the above R object. However, each confidence level vector is not included in the data, because it is created automatically from `C`. To confirm false positives and hits are correctly ordered with respect to the automatically generated confidence vector,

the function `viewdata()` shows the table. Revised 2019 Nov 27 Revised 2019 Dec 5

`StanS4class`

An S4 object of class ` stanfitExtended` which is an inherited class from the S4 class `stanfit`. This R object is a fitted model object as a return value of the function `fit_Bayesian_FROC()`.

To be passed to `DrawCurves()`, `ppp()` and ... etc
