@GSCollins @f2harrell oh no! ROC plots show sample size much better than the CI of c-stat does. and skewness. and overlap of risk distributions. don't remove the plots but educate how to 'read' them. here's (again) one attempt to that: https://t.co/wO8n07pbMj

@DrMJoyner @stephensenn @f2harrell @VinayPrasad82 Allow me some promotion: if you want to know why the receiver operating curve is relevant, read this: https://t.co/wO8n07pbMj ROC is just a different way of drawing risk distributions for patients and nonpatients, the essence of discrimination and prediction
Fast, open access, open for post-publication comments, copy-righted, and free. It's not indexed (pubmed, wos), which could be one reason to pay for formal open access publication, but are there more benefits? https://t.co/wO8n07pbMj https://t.co/1ynvSV2Vrd
