Figure 10 presents forest plots of the individual study estimates of sensitivity and specificity of ECG in 13 good-quality studies for diagnosing CAD in women from mixed populations. Error bars represent 95% CIs; the dashed vertical line represents the summary sensitivity and specificity for the 13 included studies. In these studies, sensitivity varied from 26 to 91 percent, and specificity varied from 33 to 81 percent; the summary sensitivity was 65 percent, and the summary specificity was 60 percent.
