Personal Statement

Dr. Andriy Bandos’s primary research interest is the design and analysis of studies of accuracy of classification and prediction. Major focus of his collaborative work has been in design and analysis of multi-reader retrospective as well as prospective studies of diagnostic technologies for medical imaging. His current methodological research includes statistical evaluation of detection and classification performance, ROC analysis, design and analysis of multi-reader (MRMC) studies, free-response ROC (FROC) methodology, nonparametric methods and resampling approaches in statistics. Most of methodological developments stemmed from the collaborative work and aimed to address questions frequently arising in practice.
