Table 2 Distribution of the studied LLD candidates according to their age, gender, and BMI (n = 37)

From: Hepatic magnetic resonance elastography: can it be an alternative to invasive biopsy preceding living donor liver transplantation?

Parameters LLDs candidates (n = 37) F P value
Normal liver tissue (n = 26; 70.27%) Abnormal liver tissue (n = 11; 29. 73%)
Age (in years) < 35 (n = 27/37; 72.97%) 23 (62.16%) 4 (10.81%) 23.831 < 0.003*
≥ 35 (n = 10/37; 27.03%) 3 (8.11%) 7 (18.92%)
Gender Males (n = 28/37; 75.68%) 19 (51.36%) 9 (24.32%) 26.377 < 0.02*
Females (n = 9/37; 24.32%) 7 (18.92%) 2 (5.40%)
BMI (in kg/ m2) < 25 25 (67.57%) 24 (64.86%) 1 (2.71%) 78.603 < 0.001*
≥ 25 12 (32.43%) 2 (5.40%) 10 (27.03%)
