  1. A sensitivity analysis using multiple paired t-tests was performed to analyze the difference in the rank of true positives returned by the direct and indirect method at different search thresholds for rank k. Each cell contains the respective probability. All significant (P < .05) findings are confirmed to be in favor of the indirect method.
