CT vs. MRI for the Diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease
Data from Schuetz (2010) of the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD),used conventional coronary angiography as the reference standard. Among the total 103 studies, 84 evaluated only the accuracy of CT, 14 evaluated only MRI, and 5 studies evaluated both.
A data frame containing 6 variables and 108 observations, including 103 studies. The variables are:
|Test|| ||name of the screening test|
|Study_ID|| ||primary study name|
|tp|| ||number of true positives|
|fp|| ||number of false positives|
|fn|| ||number of false negatives|
|tn|| ||number of true negatives|
