Prob that screening test is (+) for Pt with Dz?
 Ans: Sensitivity
 Eq: A / (A+C)

Prob that Pt w () test, doesn't have Dz?
 Ans: Negative Predictive Value (NPV)
 Eq: D / (C+D)

Prob that a test will be () in Pt w/o Dz?
 Ans: Specificity
 Eq: D / (B+D)

Prob that a test(+) Pt actually has the Dz?
 Ans: Positive Predictive Value (PPV)
 Eq: A / (A+B)

What are the odds of exposure among Pts w a Dz, Vs, odds of exposure among Pt w/o Dz?
 Ans: Odds Ratio (OR)
 unique: Determined through casecontrol studies
