Question 1: The standard deviation of intra-operator difference was 0.35 mm. What exactly is this standard deviation? How does it differ from the within-subject standard deviation?
This is the standard deviation of the differences between two measurements made by the same operator. The within-subject standard deviation is the standard deviation of differences between repeated measurements on the same subject. The standard deviation of intra-operator difference is equal to the within-subject standard deviation multiplied by root 2.
