From: Correlation between clinical and MRI assessment of depth of invasion in oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma

Clinical depth (mm) Pathological depth
  <5 ≥5 Total
<5 8 5 13
≥5 2 38 40
Total 10 43 53
Sensitivity 80 %
Specificity 84 %
PPV 61.5 %
Kappa coefficient 0.613, 95 % C.I (0.36-0.87)
  1. Kappa coefficients were used to determine the agreement between measures once categorized according to the cutoff point. Closer values to 1 mean higher agreement between categories
