Comparison of semiparametric receiver operating characteristic models on observer data

Comparison of semiparametric receiver operating characteristic models on observer data Abstract. The evaluation of medical imaging devices often involves studies that measure the ability of observers to perform a signal detection task on images obtained from those devices. Data from such studies are frequently regressed ordinally using two-sample receiver operating characteristic (ROC) models. We applied some of these models to a number of randomly chosen data sets from medical imaging and evaluated how well they fit using the Akaike and Bayesian information criteria and cross-validation. We find that for many observer data sets, a single-parameter model is sufficient and that only some studies exhibit evidence for the use of models with more than a single parameter. In particular, the single-parameter power-law model frequently well describes observer data. The power-law model has an asymmetric ROC curve and a constant mean-to-sigma ratio seen in studies analyzed with the bi-normal model. It is identical or very similar to special cases of other two-parameter models. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Medical Imaging SPIE

Abstract

Abstract. The evaluation of medical imaging devices often involves studies that measure the ability of observers to perform a signal detection task on images obtained from those devices. Data from such studies are frequently regressed ordinally using two-sample receiver operating characteristic (ROC) models. We applied some of these models to a number of randomly chosen data sets from medical imaging and evaluated how well they fit using the Akaike and Bayesian information criteria and cross-validation. We find that for many observer data sets, a single-parameter model is sufficient and that only some studies exhibit evidence for the use of models with more than a single parameter. In particular, the single-parameter power-law model frequently well describes observer data. The power-law model has an asymmetric ROC curve and a constant mean-to-sigma ratio seen in studies analyzed with the bi-normal model. It is identical or very similar to special cases of other two-parameter models.
