Carkeet A. Exact parametric confidence intervals for Bland-Altman match limits. Optom Vis Sci. 2015;92:e71–80. For the blood pressure data presented in Bland and Altman [2] with the sample size N = 85, the mean sample difference (observer minus machine) ( overline{X} ) = − 16.29 mmHg and the standard deviation of the differences S = 19.61 are the 95% confidence intervals of the exact method and two approximate methods for the 2.5th percentile {( widehat{uptheta} ) L , ( widehat{uptheta} ) U } = {− 62,9501, − 48.3770}, {( widehat{uptheta} ) AL , ( widehat{uptheta} ) AU } = {− 62.1035, − 47.5754} or {( widehat{uptheta} ) BAL and ( widehat{uptheta} ) BAU } = {− 61.9536, − 47.4961}. The large number of citations showed that Bland-Altman analysis has become the most important technique for evaluating the agreement between two clinical measurement methods. But the recent work of Carkeet [19] and Carkeet and Goh [20] has provided detailed discussions in favor of a precise confidence interval on the approximate procedure considered in Bland and Altman [1, 2], especially when sample sizes are small. Other considerations and reviews on the measurement of agreement in method comparison studies are available in Barnhart, Haber and Lin [21], Choudhary and Nagaraja [22] and Lin et al. [23].
