Involved In Independent Attempts To Measure Cusp Base Areas Of Pan M L S.
Of the randomly selected subsample for the interobserver error
analysis, 69% of the cases were correctly estimated into confidence intervals by the examiner with less experience using the method (Observer 2), while 94% were correctly estimated by the examiner with more experience (Observer 1).
To avoid interobserver error
in methodology, it was measured and recorded only by one person.
The discordance between imaging modalities has been explained by the variation in techniques used to determine maximum aneurysm diameter, together with the presence of interobserver error
. The definition of maximum diameter in this study for both modalities was outer-to-outer diameter.
We then removed all traits expressing no variation (either 100% or 0% in the combined sample), showed high initial interobserver error
, or for which tetrachoric correlations could not be computed due to zero denominators.
Of the approximately 320 adults stored at the institute, 15 skeletons were randomly sampled for inclusion in the intraobserver error test, 6 of which were used for the interobserver error
Measurements were done by a single examiner (G.S) to eliminate interobserver error
. Each measurement was taken three times and the average of the three values was noted to minimize the intra-observer error.
The validity of the method was examined by conducting an interobserver error
test of the TBS and analyzing the accuracy of the method at predicting ADD at four known ADD intervals (100, 300, 500, and 1,000) from all three facilities.
The ability to replicate measurements is essential for any morphological study, reason why intra- and interobserver error
test were made.
Lewis and Garvin (2016) tested interobserver error
rates, finding that perfect agreement between two observers ranged from a low of 21.2% (European-American; mental eminence) to a high of only 61.7% (African-American; mastoid process).
