Table 5 Simple linear regression shows baseline bone oedema predicts three-year cartilage score

From: MRI osteitis predicts cartilage damage at the wrist in RA: a three-year prospective 3T MRI study examining cartilage damage

Prediction of radiolunate cartilage score (2012)
Baseline bone oedema (2009) Estimate SE Pr >|t|
Distal radius 1.40 0.31 0.0001
Lunate 0.19 0.30 0.518
Sum score for distal radius and lunate 0.45 0.19 0.0247
Prediction of radioscaphoid cartilage score (2012)
Baseline bone oedema (2009) Estimate SE Pr >|t|
Distal radius 1.10 0.30 0.0012
Scaphoid 0.84 0.27 0.0045
Sum score distal radius and scaphoid 0.55 0.15 0.001
