Figure 3 Summary receiver operating characteristic curves for carbohydrate antigen 19-9 assays for differential diagnosis of pancreatic carcinoma and chronic pancreatitis. Solid circles represent each study included in the meta-analysis, with circle size proportional to the number of participants in the study. SROC curves summarize the overall diagnostic accuracy for all included studies (A), studies using a cut-off of 37 U/mL carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) (B), studies using a cut-off of 100 U/mL CA19-9 (C), studies based on the radioimmunoassay method to assay CA19-9 (D), studies based on the ELISA method (E), and studies based on the enzyme immunoassay method (F). ELISA: Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; SROC: Summary receiver operating characteristic.
