SAS® Graphics for Clinical Trials by Example
Using real-world examples, this book shows programmers how to create clinical graphs in SAS. The book demonstrates step-by-step how to create both simple and complex graphs using Graph Template Language (GTL) and statistical graphics procedures, including the SGPLOT and SGPANEL procedures.
"The book is a highly concentrated exposition of how graphics can be used to illuminate the meaning of clinical trials data. As such, it must be sipped, not gulped. The authors have put a tremendous amount of thought into the content. Every part of the book is valuable and must be digested slowly and carefully. "

"There are examples for graphical representation of adverse events, which are not commonly included in Clinical Study Reports in the United States, but are used more often in Europe. Armed with this book, programmers can approach statistical graphics with confidence! This book is a MUST-HAVE."
