Figure F20 is a forest plot diagram depicting sensitivity of symptoms compared to clinical diagnosis (“gold standard”) of stress urinary incontinence. The data came from 5 studies. The plot has two columns. The left-hand column lists the last name of the first author for each study and the year of the publication. The right-hand column is a plot of sensitivity as percentage with 95% CI of the subjects with symptoms of stress urinary incontinence and with clinical diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence. Pooled with random effects model mean sensitivity is presented by a square incorporating confidence intervals represented by horizontal lines. Figure demonstrates that in average, 88% (95%CI 68; 96 %) of women with symptoms of stress urinary incontinence have clinical diagnosis of stress UI.
