To illustrate these tests consider the larynx cancer data discussed in Section 3. 18 for Gehan test. 0001 which is strong evidence that patients in at least one of the stages has a different survival probability. 1. Using a Bonferonni correction we see that at a 5% overall experimental error rate we have a difference only between Stage I and Stage IV patients and between Stage II and IV patients. 1. 08(0. 0470) The log rank test when applied to survival data is comparing the hazard rates of the time to the event in treatment arms.
It may not be appropriate to double the program cost for a 14% increase in number of cases found. This example demonstrates the use of our models for comparing different programs. Our approach can be a useful tool for health policy makers in assessing cost effectiveness of any screening program. To our knowledge, the recommendation of the American Caner Society for annual screening for breast cancer is not based on analytical considerations. 3 Screening Younger Women There is considerable controversy about the benefit of mammogram examinations in prolonging life for women in their 40's.
