how to set up a probability distribution
I'm trying to do a cost-effectiveness analysis for a new osteoporosis screening tool. I plan to construct a logic for osteoporosis treatment if the BMD meets the reference value after an annual screening.
I plan to set up a probability distribution for baseline BMD and sample the baseline BMD of individual patients from the probability distribution in the microsimulation. can I ask how can I use TreeAge to implement this sample? Many thanks!
Additionally, theoretically, each age group corresponds to a distribution. If my model cycles for 20 years, do I need to build 20 distributions? How to achieve a distribution corresponding to an age group?
