What is false positive & false negative results?

In this video, Dr. Narendra Saini, MBBS, MD, Internal / General Medicine, will discuss about false positive & false negative results in this video. False positive means the test reports are showing positive results but that particular person in not suffering from that disease. Dr. Saini will explain this with example.He will also explain the false negative results which means the tests are negative but the person is suffering from that particular disease. For example, the malaria test might come negative but the patient is having malaria, this is because the concentration of the malarial organisms might be low at that particular time. If the test is repeated after 2-3 days, it might show positive.
