Latent Class Models for Conditionally Dependent Tests
These WinBUGS programs can be used for modeling results of two conditionally dependent, non-gold standard diagnostic tests using latent class analysis.
- Fixed effects model
- Random effects model
They implement the methods described in
Dendukuri and Joseph, Bayesian approaches to modeling the conditional dependence between multiple diagnostic tests. Biometrics 57:158-167, 2001
