A list of readings in ROC methodology, with emphasis on medical
applications, follows below.  Several worthwhile recent papers are
missing from this list, which needs updating, but it should get you
started in the right direction.

If you have access to the World Wide Web, you can download our
University of Chicago software for ROC curve fitting and statistical
analysis at http://www.***.com/
