New publication: PPV and NPV for continous and ordinal tests

Many diagnostic tests get dichotomized when calculating the positive and negative predictive value in a clinical setting - this is obviously a loss of information that could be avoided. In this paper, i extended the rationale of the ppv and npv to continous and ordinal scales, so you can get a more fine-grained assessment.

Using Bayes theorem to estimate positive and negative predictive values for continuously and ordinally scaled diagnostic tests

**Objectives:** Positive and negative predictive values (PPV/NPV) are frequently reported to put estimates of accuracy of a diagnostic test in clinical context and to obtain risk estimates for a given patient taking into account baseline prevalence …
