Hi Nick,

Perhaps this could be formulated as a repeated-measures ANOVA problem with adjustments for serial correlation?

> I would like to ask the following question.
> 
> We have a set of 3-D images constructed from cat scans, and we are measuring volumes defined by certain anatomical points on the 3-D images.
> 
> The reconstruction/measuring technique is performed using 3 new types of software and their results will be compared with the results of validated/reference technique.
> 
> The same reconstructions/cat scans are used for all techniques.
> 
> The objective is to see how close (do they differ significantly?) the volume values recorded by each technique are to the values recorded by the reference technique.
> 
> I was thinking along the lines of regression with the volume(continuous) variable as the dependent variable and technique as the categorical dependent variable with 4 levels. The reference level would be the the standard/validated method.
> 
> However, how would I account for the fact that the data is correlated since all measurements for the 4 methods are taken from the same reconstructions/scans?
> 
> Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

> Many thanks,
