Table 2 Improvement in synovial hypertrophy (SH) in joints with and without Doppler activity

From: Is synovial hypertrophy without Doppler activity sensitive to change? Post-hoc analysis from a rheumatoid arthritis ultrasound study

Time Grades Joints with SH without Doppler activity Joints with SH with Doppler activity Adjusted odds ratio p value
Number of joints Frequency of improvement Number of joints Frequency of improvement

  1. The table shows the frequency of improvement in joints at 3 and 6 months for all grades overall and separately for each grade
  2. The relative frequency of a SH score decrease ≥ 1 were analyzed using a generalized linear mixed model adjusting for baseline SH score using a separate coefficient per time point
