TRANSPARENT REPORTING of SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS and META-ANALYSES

PRISMA for Diagnostic Test Accuracy

The PRISMA extension for Diagnostic Test Accuracy (DTA) Studies was published in 2018. The 27-item PRISMA diagnostic test accuracy checklist provides specific guidance for reporting of systematic reviews. The PRISMA diagnostic test accuracy guideline can facilitate the transparent reporting of reviews, and may assist in the evaluation of validity and applicability, enhance replicability of reviews, and make the results from systematic reviews of diagnostic test accuracy studies more useful.
