Updated: An introduction to diagnostic testing (created 2003-09-08).

This page provides resources for a small booklet I have developed, "An introduction to diagnostic testing." I have printed a few of these booklets and attached a fully constructed version of the likelihood ratio slide rule. If you are teaching a class and want to incorporate this material, I am willing to offer a reasonable number of copies of this for free. In exchange, I'd like you to offer some feedback about this booklet. Eventually, I want to expand this into a larger project, possibly a book.

If you want to download this material directly, please note that I have links to some of these resources.

This page was written by Steve Simon while working at Children's Mercy Hospital. Although I do not hold the copyright for this material, I am reproducing it here as a service, as it is no longer available on the Children's Mercy Hospital website. Need more information? I have a page with general help resources. You can also browse for pages similar to this one at Category: Diagnostic testing.
