    Formulas for the calculation of the bio-impedance confi-dence and tolerance ellipses.
    The following section has been adapted (with permission) from Piccoli A, Pastori: BIVA software [25].
    Geometrical parameters for drawing the RXc Graph and the RXc-score Graph.
    Confidence and tolerance intervals can be calculated for the bivariate normal distribution [46e50]. A simple linear correlation analysis can be used for calculation following appropriate modifi-cation of the equations [9,23].
    Given n pairs of observations x and y, with standard deviation sx and sy, and correlation coefficient r, for a fixed a probability level, the Snedecor's Fa value CHIR 265 taken with 2 and n-2 degrees of freedom. RXc Graph.
    RXc-score graph.
    The parameters of tolerance ellipses of bivariate Z-scores (RXc Zscore graph) can be calculated accordingly, using equations 1b and 2b [23].
