Sequential diagnostic trial designs

Authors


Abstract

Group sequential design (GSD) as an alternative of the fixed sample design addresses both cost and ethical concerns in diagnostic trials. In this article, we review GSD methods for comparing the diagnostic accuracy of markers in diagnostic trials. We also review sample size calculation methods in such trials.
