This is a plot of 5 summary receiver operating characteristic curves based on the bivariate meta-analysis model; these are the sane curves shown in Figure D-2 but plotted in the logit space. This graph (because of the transformation to the logit scale) emphasizes the point that the alternative parameterizations of the summary receiver operating characteristic curve can result in different intercepts and slopes for the fitted curve. Please see the main text of the report for a discussion of why these differences occur.
