This figure shows the Summary Receiver Operating Curve (SROC) using bivariate mixed effects model for estimating the area under the curve (AUC) of NT-proBNP assay with 95% confidence interval (95% CI) when considering the lowest cut-points of diagnostic studies of heart failure in primary care settings. Estimated AUC of 12 included studies is 0.82 (95% CI: 0.79, 0.85). Each circle denotes one study. The horizontal line represents specificity and vertical line represents sensitivity.
