Equations for Comparing the False Negative Rate (FNR) of Two Radiotracers

ParameterEquation
Test statistic z for comparison of 2 binomial samples using normal approximationEmbedded Image, where Embedded Image is estimated from the sample to estimate population FNR and n is number of patients receiving each radiotracer
95% CI for difference of 2 proportions using normal approximationEmbedded Image, where z corresponds to quantile of standard normal distribution for chosen confidence level, 95%
