Figure 2 Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis showing diagnostic performance of carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (U/mL), carbohydrate antigen 125 (U/mL), carcinoembryonic antigen (µg/L), and carbohydrate antigen 242 (U/mL) in predicting gallbladder cancer vs benign gallbladder disease. ROC: Receiver operating characteristic curve.
