What do the results mean?

The results are the clearest and most accurate set of results available for radiologists today.  The results determine your ability to diagnose accurately.

 

What is Sensitivity?

How good you are at picking out the abnormal (for example, if the test-set is looking for cancers, this is how good you are at picking out cancers). This is the True Positive Fraction (TPF), i.e. the number of true positives divided by overall number of positives in the test-set.

 

What is Specificity?

How good you are at picking out the normal cases. This is the True Negative Fraction (TNF), i.e., the number of true negatives divided by the overall number of negatives

 

What is Receiver Operator Characteristic (ROC)?

If we plot a curve of the True Positive Fraction (TPF) Versus False Positive Fraction (FPF) and get the area under the curve, we get a much more accurate measure of your performance.

 

What is Localisation ROC?

With regular ROC we are looking at case-level performance. If we go one step further we would look at whether you also got the location correct. For example, you may call a case positive but actually get the location wrong. LROC takes all of this into account.

 

What is a True Positive

The number of positive cases you called positive.

 

What is a True Negative

The number of negative cases you called negative.

 

What is a False Positive

The number of negative cases you called positive.

 

What is a False Negative

The number of positive cases you called negative.

 

How are the results calculated?

The Ziltron system uses advanced statistical analysis to compute results in real time.

 

What resolutions does your system operate at?

Are the web images of diagnostic quality?
