For purposes of our study we decided to use the type-A uncertainty evaluation method (statistical processing of mea sured data). to formulate diagnostic error for the bIA method we used typical (standard) error of measurement from differences between pairs of repeated measurements – which is in principle a mean error of the test. the… CONTINUE READING
