Mayo Study of TcB: TcB vs. diazo TsB

Slide 11

June 2009

This is a Bland-Altmann plot showing the difference between transcutaneous and diazo serum bilirubin, on the y-axis, vs. the mean of transcutaneous and serum bilirubin on the x-axis.  On average transcutaneous bilirubin was significantly higher than diazo serum bilirubin, with a median bias of 2.0 mg/dL.  The relationship between transcutaneous and serum bilirubin does not appear to change much over the range of bilirubin levels encountered--suggesting a relatively constant bias between transcutaneous and serum bilirubin.
