Issues and pitfalls in method comparison studies


Hartnack, Sonja (2014). Issues and pitfalls in method comparison studies. Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia, 41(3):227-232.

Abstract

Method comparison studies are needed for validation
of new methods of measurements, for example, noninvasive
blood pressure measurements against standard reference methods. After a brief introduction into method comparison studies, this paper is organized in three sections. The first section deals with the widely, though not always appropriately, used classical Bland-Altman plot with the limits of agreement and its extensions with non-constant bias and multiple observations. The second section comments
on other statistical approaches including correlation coefficients, linear regressions and sensitivities
and specificities which are sometimes seen in method comparison studies. The third section proposes the usage of linear mixed effects models as a flexible way to deal with questions associated with method comparison studies.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
