Figure 1: Receiver operator curve for carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) considering mortality as a status variable. The area under curve for CIMT was 0.725 (95% confi dence interval [CI]: 0.619-0.815). A CIMT cut-off of 0.97 (unit required) had a sensitivity of 88.97% and specifi city of 72.88% in predicting the mortality. The +likelihood ratio (LR) value of 2.54 (95% CI 1.6-4.1) and -LR value of 0.43 (95% CI 0.2-0.7)
