Dear all.

I'm planning a diagnostic meta-analysis with an imaging test and a binary
outcome (yes/no) .

Some (not all) studies contain multiple readers, which means that more than
one physician interprets each examination.

At present, it appears that there are no recommendations for which strategy
is optimal (see Eur J Radiol. 2017;93:59-64 Systematic Reviews 2017;6:194).

I would appreciate very much suggestions on this topic. 


Thanks for the attention.
