Thus, the predictive values are affected by the prevalence of disease in the study population. A practical understanding of this concept is shown in examples 1 and 2 in Appendix 2. 82. 92, respectively, remain unchanged. If the test information is kept constant (same sensitivity and specificity), the pretest probability (prevalence) affects the posttest probability (predictive value) results. The concept of diagnostic performance discussed above can be summarized by incorporating the data from Appendix 2 into a nomogram for interpreting diagnostic test results (Fig.

3. Screening biases. For this figure, cancers are assumed to grow at a continuous rate until they reach a size at which death of the subject occurs. At a small size, the cancers may be evident on screening, but not yet evident clinically. This is the preclinical screen detectable phase. Screening is potentially helpful if it detects cancer in this phase. After further growth, the cancer will be clinically evident. Even if the growth and outcome of the cancer is unaffected by screening, merely detecting the cancer earlier will increase apparent survival.
