Table 1 Sensitivity, specificity and accuracy as measures of the performance of a binary classification test

From: Detection of Plasmodium falciparum infected Anopheles gambiae using near-infrared spectroscopy

Sensitivity Specificity Accuracy
\(\frac{TP}{TP + FN}\) \(\frac{TN}{TN + FP}\) \(\frac{TP + TN}{TP + TN + FP + FN}\)
  1. TP True positives, TN true negative, FP false positive, FN false negatives
