This is a plot of 5 summary receiver operating characteristic curves based on the bivariate meta-analysis model. In this example (the same presented in Table D-1 and Figure D-1) the graphs from the five methods “track together” throughout the receiver operating characteristic space indicating that the methods compared produce fairly similar, but not identical, estimates of the curve parameters. Please see the text for a discussion of why the curves may produce different results.
