Table 6 Associations between changes in BML scores and changes in weight-bearing pain

From: Association of subchondral bone marrow lesion localization with weight-bearing pain in people with knee osteoarthritis: data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative

BML score changes Pearson’s r p Β (95% CI) p
Total score 0.13 0.002* 0.07 (0.00–0.13) 0.04*
Medial FT joint 0.16 < 0.001** 0.10 (0.02–0.18) 0.01*
Lateral FT joint − 0.06 0.13 − 0.21 (− 0.53–0.11) 0.20
Medial PF joint − 0.01 0.73 − 0.10(− 0.31–0.11) 0.34
Lateral PF joint 0.02 0.58 0.10 (− 0.09–0.30) 0.29
Subspinous region 0.10 0.01* 0.21 (− 0.03–0.45) 0.09
