Enter the pre-test probability and the likelihood ratio into the calculator to determine the post-test probability.

Post-Test Probability Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the post-test probability.

Pre Test Odds = P/(1 – P) = 0.012

Post Test Odds = Pre Test Odds * LR

Post Test Probability = Post Test Odds/(1 + Post Test Odds)

  • Where P is the pre-test probability
  • LR is the likelihood ratio

Post-Test Probability Definition

Post-test probability is defined as the chance of an event occurring given a pre-test probability and pre-test odds.

What is post test probability?

A post-test probability is a likelihood for an event to occur given a starting pre-test probability, and pre-test odds.
