Table 5 Relation between provisional remission domains and DECT urate crystal volume in multivariate regression model*

From: Concurrent validity of provisional remission criteria for gout: a dual-energy CT study

Variable Mean square F P
Serum urate (< 0.36 mmol/L) 7225 4.46 0.036
Tophus (absence) 18,257 11.27 0.001
Flares (none in the last 12 months) 2167 1.34 0.25
Pain (due to gout, < 2) 2100 1.30 0.26
Patient global assessment of gout activity (< 2) 6764 4.17 0.043
  1. *All individual remission domains were forced into the model. DECT crystal volumes were analyzed as ranks. Model statistics: adjusted R2 = 0.14, F = 5.8, P < 0.001
