Default values are arithmetic means from our database.
Min and max are limited by a 6sigma factor.
MAE - mean absolute error; RMSE - root mean squared error; NRMSE - normalized root mean squared error; R.Squared - R-Squared; Bias - difference between expected value and the true value of the parameter being estimated; Coverage - the proportion of the time that the interval contains the true value of interest; PIW - predictive interval mean width.
The most superior point of the odontoid process (dens) to the most inferior point of the anterioinferior rim of the vertebral body.
The maximum height of the vertebral body, measured in its anterior third, medial to the superiorly curving edges of the centrum.
The maximum height of the vertebral body, anterior to the rib articular facets and pedicles.
The maximum height of the vertebral body, anterior to the pedicles, not including any swelling of the centrum due to the pedicles.
The maximum height between the anterior-superior rim of the body (i.e., the sacral promontory) and its point of fusion/articulation with the second sacral vertebra. This most commonly occurs in the midline. Measure with the calipers parallel to the anterior surface of S1.
