in which y is the indicator of bone metabolism, [alpha] is a constant, b is the regression coefficient, x is continuous uranium exposure, agecat
is age category (45-55, 55-65, and [greater than or equal to] 65 years), smo is current smoking status, and estro is use of estrogens, the last two being binary indicator (dummy) variables.
A preliminary communication about the organic section of the HAS AGECAT
Computerised diagnosis from a standardised history schedule: a preliminary communication about the organic section of the HAS AGECAT
Stage 2 AGECAT diagnoses from the GMSS ('diagnostic case level') were: well 31 (70%); depression eight 18%);,organic brain syndrome five (10%); and anxiety disorder one (2%).
AGECAT stage 2 output (diagnostic case level) compared with physicians' diagnoses and suggested treatments
In this study one-third of consecutive attenders were assigned a psychiatric diagnosis using the GMSS and its diagnostic algorithm AGECAT. The prevalence of diagnostic case level depression was 18%-identical to an estimate by McCrea et al.
Figure 3 shows the ROC curves for the BAS and EBAS DEP scales using the stage 1 AGECAT diagnoses as the criterion for a case of depression.
In addition, the GMS items used by AGECAT to determine stage 1 diagnoses of depression include some that are similar to and others that are the same as the BAS DEP scale items.
