Note!
The
prevalance of test A
is set to a fixed value in the above section; therefore, its initial will not be taken into account during Bayesian LCM analysis.
The
prevalance of test B
is set to a fixed value in the above section; therefore, its initial will not be taken into account during Bayesian LCM analysis.
The
sensitivity of test A
is set to a fixed value in the above section; therefore, its initial will not be taken into account during Bayesian LCM analysis.
The
sensitivity of test B
is set to a fixed value in the above section; therefore, its initial will not be taken into account during Bayesian LCM analysis.
The

is set to a fixed value in the above section; therefore, its initial will not be taken into account during Bayesian LCM analysis.

Conventional method to be compared with the imperfect gold standard model
(Using example value)
Test A was assumed as a perfect gold standard
Test B was assumed as a perfect gold standard
Positive results of either test A or B was assumed as a perfect gold standard
Positive results of both test A and B was assumed as a perfect gold standard
