Figure 1: Receiver operating characteristics curve for ischemia-modified albumin values in the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. According to receiver operating characteristics curve, the optimal ischemia-modified albumin value for acute appendicitis was found to be 3.4 absorbance unit with a sensitivity of 95% and specificity of 80% (area under the receiver operating characteristics curve = 0.935, P < 0.001) [Figure 1]. At this level, positive predictive value of ischemia-modified albumin was found to be 84%
