Extract

χ2 Analysis of the responses of the DATTA panelists determined that the frequencies of responses (established, investigational, indeterminate, or unacceptable) differ significantly from those expected due to chance alone (P<.001). Construction of the 95% confidence interval comparing the established category vs the combination of the investigational, unacceptable, and indeterminate categories showed a significant difference, indicating that the DATTA panelists considered the technology to be established as safe for the specified indications. Three panelists offered no opinion on this technology.
χ2 Analysis of the responses of the DATTA panelists determined that the frequencies of responses (established, investigational, indeterminate, or unacceptable) differ significantly from those expected due to chance alone for screening (P<.05) and for staging (P<.025). Construction of the 95% confidence interval comparing the established category vs the combination of the investigational, unacceptable, and indeterminate categories showed a significant difference only on the screening question, indicating that the DATTA panelists did not believe that effectiveness had been established. Three panelists offered no opinion on this technology.
