Percentile Intervals in Bayesian Inference are Overconfident


This dataset demonstrates the difference in calculating percentile Intervals as approximation for Highest Density Intervals (HDI) vs. Highest Posterior Density (HPD). This is demonstrated with extended partial liver resection data (ZeLeR-study, ethical vote: 2018-1246-Material).

The data includes Computed Tomography (CT) liver volume measurements of patients before (POD 0) and after partial hepatectomy. Liver volume was normalized per patient to the preoperative liver volume. was used to screen the liver regeneration courses. The Fujifilm Synapse3D software was used to calculate volume estimates from CT images. The data is structured in a tabular separated value file of the PEtab format.
