Table 2 Distribution of image quality score items among the studied groups

From: Non-contrast MR portography using time-spatial labeling inversion pulse for diagnosis of portal vein pathology

  Breathing Ascites Dilated biliary radicals
Regular Irregular Present Absent Present Absent
Diseased group 8 17 6 19 2 23
Control group 16 9 0 25 3 22
Chi-square* p value < 0.0001 p value = 0.290 p value = 0.749
  1. *Chi-square test was done to study the relation between image quality and three items of image quality score including breathing regularity, presence of ascites, and intrahepatic biliary radicals. p value was considered significant if < 0.0001
