In order to adjust for conditional dependence in a latent class model, diagnostic test accuracy may be a function of a random effect. In this context we show how the prior distribution may be specified it may be

This is a second article in our series of blog articles illustrating Rjags programs for diagnostic meta-analysis models. We previously looked at the Bayesian bivariate model. In this article we describe how to carry out Bayesian inference for the Bivariate latent class meta-analysis model (Xie, Sinclair and…
