Values for each stenosis were compared to assess intra-observer (a-a, bob) and inter-observer (a-b) variability, D = mean difference in readings between first and second estimates. Lesions were grouped into following ranges of degree of stenosis (%): 0-9, 10-29, 30-49, 50-69, 70-89, 90-100, as shown on abscissa. Reproduced with permission from Shub et at. [110].

The severity of the lesion, its location, or presence of ectasia or calcium did not effect the discrepancy rate, whereas segments that were unusually short, diffusely diseased, or obscured by overlapping vessels were especially difficult to interpret.
