## Figure 2.
Expected shapes of the observed distribution of survival times after detection. Shaded cells A1-C3 show the expected distribution of survival times after detection,
given different scenarios for the true distribution of stage 1 survival (A, B and
C) and incidence in the pre-detection period (1, 2 and 3). P = proportion of cases
remaining in stage 1; t = time; * = exponential function , with mean stage 1 duration = 1/r_{1; }** = linear function P(t) = -r_{1}t with fixed stage 1 duration = 1/r_{1}.
