Dr Leo McHugh presented an algorithmic method for interpreting the performance of high accuracy diagnostics when judged against clinical diagnoses known to contain uncertainty. This is the first public release of this method and associated open-course software for the diagnostics community. The method and software has been developed in conjunction with FDA statisticians and is intended to improve both the accuracy of diagnostic estimations when there is uncertainty in diagnosis, and to facilitate better comparisons of diagnostic performance across patient cohorts with different levels of clinical diagnostic confidence.
