Wow! Where have you been for the entirety of my professional life? I've come to the realization that I am a visual learner. No one has been able to teach me biostatistics in a way that I can understand it until I found MedCram. Thank you. I'm recommending your website to all of my friends.
very very good. first time I understood this topic very clearly. the best teacher ever

Best explanation I've ever heard of the concepts of Sensitivity and Specificity. Not only do I get it, but I can now explain it to someone else.
Thank you very much. It was explained clearly.
Very good explanation of sensitivity and specificity made easy. Great job.
