Beam deflection in ETABS

Beam deflection in ETABS

I'm trying to determine how ETABs ver. 9.2 is reporting beam deflections.  I have run my design and have a beam failing as a result of deflection and I can see the load combination which is resulting in that deflection.  When I check the analysis moment 3-3 diagram and the deflections that result from that load combination I can't get them to match.  

Does anyone know how the deflections reported in the moment 3-3 diagrams relate to those reported in the design results?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
