The balance between sensitivity and specificity determined the best cutoff points of each OI to discriminate MetS.
For GCS less than 9, we sought an appropriate cutoff point for the continuous variable of BIS to define a binary classification, that is, severe brain injury and nonsevere (moderate) brain injury; the ROC curve showed that a BIS of 60.2 maximized the combined sensitivity and specificity (sensitivity, 0.91; specificity, 0.63; AUC, 0.8164), enabling highly accurate diagnosis of severe brain injury.
They concluded that a sensitive cutoff point for RBC counts in SAH was more than 2000 X [10.sup.6]/L.
The TS that corresponds to the MSS is the optimum cutoff point (the point that maximizes accuracy) above which stocks would be, rationally, more valuable candidates for possible inclusion in a portfolio.
Moreover, HbA1c 5.9% may be a preferred cutoff point than 5.7% due to the larger Youden index of 0.351, which exceeded the indices for FPG and 2hPG.
In terms of cutoff point for WC, the current study showed that girls had higher WC as compared with boys, consistent with other studies [25, 28].
Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve was drawn to analyze the cutoff points of HE4 and CA125 levels for the diagnosis of endometrial cancer.
Alternatively, as we propose in this paper and show below by way of hypothetical example, the cutoff point that establishes the Criterion Standard Test is the one that corresponds to the lowest P-Value of the Pearson's chi-squared test ([chi square]).
Every cutoff point of BUN at admission and after 24 hrs for prediction of SAP was shown in Tables 2 and 3.
A WHO expert consultation recommended that a body mass index (BMI) cutoff point of >30 kg/[m.sup.2] should be used as an international classification to determine obesity.
Symmetrically, college admissions are based on ability alone, creating a strict cutoff point in the distribution of ability, [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
In all participants, a suitable cutoff point for BMI in detecting obesity was 27.70 kg/[m.sup.2] (sensitivity=88%, specificity=88.6%).
If the idea gets the go-ahead, the cutoff point could potentially come in 2018.
NT-ProBNP was analysed as a predictor of mortality by calculating the ideal cutoff point optimised by multiplying sensitivity by specificity using mortality at 30 days as a reference and plotting the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve.
One month later, a Scottish study published in the Lancet arrived at the same conclusion using 5 ng/dL as a cutoff point. Interestingly, only 16 percent of patients in the study were found to be having a heart attack.
