Excerpt
Excerpt: A Window on Disease Underlying the work presented in PLoS Medicine is the principle of the scan statistic, which offers a probability of an excessive number of case reports appearing within a narrowly defined space and time, as compared with a probability determined from information collected in a larger region or over a longer period. Scan statistics arent new, but the PLoS Medicine paper adds a twist: the calculation of probabilities for disease outbreak within various samples of space and time. In the case of purely geographic surveillance, sudden highly localized outbreaks may be hidden in the data that have been aggregated for a region, whereas such events are more likely to be revealed once a temporal dimension has been incorporated. Space?time permutation scan statistics could therefore become a preferred way of representing the occurrence of diseases such as cancer, where the number of actual and expected reports are counted within particular ?windows.?
