Overview

This volume presents a collection of papers concerned with the modern application of statistics in medicine, and includes discussions of hypothesis testing, epidemiological modelling and prediction, the use of computational tools, and diagnostic applications. The volume provides statisticians and researchers in the medical sciences with up-to-date accounts of techniques of current interest and presents the underlying statistical issues in a clear and straightforward manner. Some of the papers discuss topical concerns such as the modelling of the spread of AIDS, the effect of radiation on the incidence of leukaemia, and "stopping rules" in clinical trials. Other papers address issues such as the use of expert systems and statistical techniques for medical diagnosis.
