Table 2 contrast measurements in patients with MTS compared between DIR, FLAIR, and T2 MRI (Data expressed as means (SDs))

From: The value of double inversion recovery MRI sequence in assessment of epilepsy patients

Parameter DIR FLAIR T2 p1 p2
SNR 135.4 (15.01) 101.2 (34.21) 63.27 (11.45)  < 0.05*  < 0.05*
CR 0.45 (0.05) 0.11 (0.03) 0.12 (0.02)  < 0.05*  < 0.05*
CNR 41.31 (2.32) 9.20 (3.34) 6.57 (1.92)  < 0.05*  < 0.05*
AI 36.30 (3.20) 10.02 (2.93) 10.78 (1.64)  < 0.05*  < 0.05*
  1. p: p value for F test (ANOVA) with repeated measures for comparing between different period
  2. Significance between periods was done using Post Hoc Test (adjusted Bonferroni)
  3. p1: p value for comparing between DIR and FLAIR
  4. p2: p value for comparing between DIR and T2
  5. *Statistically significant at p ≤ 0.05
