Table 3 Correlation between MVO size % and baseline scar size together with LV volumes measured at 2nd visit (follow-up) and its significance

From: Prognostic value of microvascular occlusion MRI quantification in assessment of reperfused myocardial infarction

 All cases n = 33
MVO %
rP value
Scar size (at baseline scan)+ 0.6520.000
EF% (follow-up)− 0.5820.000
SVI (follow-up)− 0.0860.636
EDVI (follow-up)+ 0.3890.025
ESVI (follow-up)+ 0.4380.011
  1. P value > 0.05, non-significant; P value < 0.05, significant; P value < 0.01, highly significant Spearman correlation coefficient
  2. r < 0.3, no or very weak correlation; r > 0.3–< 0.5, weak correlation; r > 0.5–< 0.7, moderate correlation; r > 0.7, strong correlation. “+” sign indicates positive correlation, “−” sign indicates negative correlation
