Table 1 Confusion matrix for assessment of diagnostic accuracy between the reference test and pattern differentiation algorithm

From: Diagnostic accuracy of pattern differentiation algorithm based on Chinese medicine theory: a stochastic simulation study

  Simulation test result (gold-standard)
Simulation pattern Other patterns
Prediction test result Identified pattern TP † FP ‡
  Other patterns FN ‡ TN †
  1. TP: true positive, TN: true negative, †: successful pattern differentiation, ‡: unsuccessful pattern differentiation
  2. Calculations displayed in this table are related to equations (8) to (12).
