Example text

However, if a positive result is obtained in an individual who does not have the disease, this is referred to as a false positive (FP). In individuals without the disease, the test results should be a true negative (TN) but occasionally a negative result is obtained in a patient who has the disease and this is referred to as a false negative (FN). The ability of a test to discriminate between diseased and healthy states is described by its clinical specificity and sensitivity. The specificity of a test is the measure of the incidence of negative results in individuals free of the disease, and defined as: ease and a positive result in all patients affected by the disease.
