Table 5 Numbers of lesions and percentage increase in lesion detection by 3D FLAIR versus 2D FLAIR

From: Diagnostic value of three-dimensional cube fluid attenuated inversion recovery imaging and its axial MIP reconstruction in multiple sclerosis

Region 2D axial FLAIR 3D sagittal FLAIR and axial MIP Percentage increase P value
Supratentorial 530.0 794.0 49.8%  < 0.001
Juxtacortical 140.0 282.0 101.4%  < 0.001
Periventricular 174.0 224.0 28.7%  < 0.001
Deep white matter 216.0 288.0 33.3%  < 0.001
Infra-tentorial 20.0 58.0 190%  < 0.001
Total 550.0 852.0 54.9%  < 0.001
  1. NB: Percentage increase was calculated by computing the difference between the 3D and 2D total counts and dividing that difference to the 2D total count, then multiplied by100
