A. Type I error B. Confidence intervals C. Type II error D. Power analysis III. What is bias? IV. What are the inherent biases in screening? V. Qualitative literature summary The keystone of the evidence-based imaging (EBI) approach is to critically assess the research data that are provided and to determine if the information is appropriate for use in answering the EBI question. Unfortunately, the published studies are often limited by bias, small sample size, and methodological inadequacy. Further, the information provided in published reports may be insufficient to allow estimation of the quality of the research.

Power analysis can be performed in advance of a research investigation to avoid type II error. To conclude that no difference exists, the study must be powered sufficiently to detect a clinically important difference and have p value or CI indicating no significant effect. D. Power Analysis Power analysis plays an important role in determining what an adequate sample size is, so that meaningful results can be obtained (8). 21 Power analysis is the probability of observing an effect in a sample of patients if the specified effect size, or greater, is found in the population (3).

Type I errors, in contrast, are analogous false positives in a study population (7). 10, then the researchers acknowledge that they are willing to accept a 10% chance of missing a correlation between abnormal computed tomography (CT) angiographic findings in the diagnosis of carotid artery disease. 90, which represents a 90% probability of finding a correlation of this magnitude. Ideally, the power should be 100% by setting b at 0. In addition, ideally a should also be 0. By accomplishing this, false-negative and falsepositive results are eliminated, respectively.
