This study aimed to calculate the repeatability of QF in the measurement of rotational IV-ROM in the cervical spine in the sagittal plane. Substantial observer repeatability was demonstrated for QF measurement of cervical spine rotational IV-ROM in the sagittal plane. The repeatability coefficients (intra-subject repeatability) can be used as cut-off values for measuring IV-ROM change in outcomes or prognosis studies of the cervical spine.
