systems, or in its application to other physical aids to those sensory systems (radar, sonar, information retrieval). To a degree, answers previously obtained supply guidelines for attaining the further answers that are desirable in the clinical setting. On the other hand, the medical application has served as a new source of motivation to extend ROC theory, thus stimulating important theoretical developments.
