  The Receiver-Operator Chracteristic (ROC) Curve demonstrates the inverse relationship between two important validation variables: the sensitivity (ability to catch most real disease) versus specificity (ability to pass most normal individuals) in a screening program. A program may choose different referral "cut-off" criteria depending on their goals. Here the PlusOptiX S04 referral criteria are compared for Kindergarten screening compared to ADBC Gateway DV-S20 photoscreening. (BVq 2007)
