Example sentences for: age-specific

How can you use “age-specific” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • With age-specific references ranges (Table 5) we found that, compared to the traditional cutpoint of 4 ng/ml, sensitivity was higher in the younger age ranges and specificity was higher in the older age ranges.

  • Oesterling and colleagues developed age-specific PSA reference ranges that lowered the cutpoint in younger men, to increase sensitivity, and raised the cutpoint in older men in order to increase specificity [ 16 ] . We found that using age-specific reference ranges did not substantially change likelihood ratios for prostate cancer, though we confirmed that sensitivity would increase in younger men and specificity would increase in older men.

  • If this were the case, then one could envision that certain capsular types might in fact follow a different age-specific incidence.

  • PSE requires estimates of age-specific cancer incidence for the following types of cancer detection: type F , detection on the first screening; type I , detection in the interval between screenings; type S , detection on screening subsequent to the first; and type A , detection in the absence of screening.

  • Although age-specific reference ranges improved sensitivity in younger men and specificity in older men, they did not substantially change likelihood ratios for cancer.
