Although measures such as sensitivity and specificity are used in the study of diagnostic test accuracy, these are not appropriate for integrating heterogeneous studies. Therefore, it is essential to assess in detail all related aspects prior to integrating a set of studies so that the correct model can then be selected. This work describes the sch...
