Paper Abstract

There are many current trends toward combining diagnostic tests and features in medical imaging. For this reason we have been exploring the stucture of the finite-training-sample bias and variance that one encounters in pilot or feasibility studies within this paradigm. Here we report on the case of the simple linear Bayesian classifier in a space of a few dimensions (two through fifteen). The results argue for the importance of estimating these effects in clinical studies, perhaps through the use of resampling techniques.
