DTA Meta-Analysis

Diagnostic Test Accuracy (DTA) Meta-Analysis involves aggregating estimates of sensitivity and specificity across studies using a bivariate meta-analysis model. Two models are commonly recognized in the literature: 1) the bivariate meta-analysis model, 2) the hierarchical summary receiver-operating-characteristic (HSROC) curve model. More about these models can be found in the Cochrane Handbook for DTA Meta-Analysis.
