Uncertainties affecting diagnostic tests for Alzheimer's disease (AD) are discussed from a bio-metrological point of view. The estimated sensitivity and specificity of a test are analyzed in a numerical example as predictors of its performance in real cases application. Current trends in molecular diagnostic research are outlined in view of reducing the effects of uncertainty factors involved in AD diagnosis.

Abstract

Uncertainties affecting diagnostic tests for Alzheimer's disease (AD) are discussed from a bio-metrological point of view. The estimated sensitivity and specificity of a test are analyzed in a numerical example as predictors of its performance in real cases application. Current trends in molecular diagnostic research are outlined in view of reducing the effects of uncertainty factors involved in AD diagnosis.
