One application is testing for normality: many statistics inferences require that a distribution be normal or nearly normal a normal distribution has skewness and excess kurtosis of 0, so if your distribution is close to those values then it is probably close to normal.

Caution should be exercised to simply diagnose a pathology based on the presence of the uptake only, or exclude the disease based on the absence of anatomic abnormality key words: fluorodeoxyglucose uptake , positron emission tomography-computer tomography , artef actual uptake , mis-registration , positron emission tomography interpretation. Defining normality and abnormality mullins-sweatt (2008) considered the issue and came to this conclusion: “simply because a behavior pattern is valued, accepted, encouraged, or even statistically normative within the presence or absence of a diagnostic label for a particular human experience has a powerful impact on the attention it.
