RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To estimate and statistically compare the bias and variance of radiologists measuring the size of spherical and complex synthetic nodules. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study did not require the institutional review board approval. Six radiologists estimated the size of 10 synthetic nodules embedded within an anthropomorphic thorax phantom from computed tomography scans at 0.8- and 5-mm slice thicknesses. The readers measured the nodule size using unidimensional (1D… CONTINUE READING
