Table 5 Comparisons of Akaike values for nonlinear fits of [N-methyl-11C]mirtazapine-PET data

From: PET kinetics of radiolabeled antidepressant, [N-methyl-11C]mirtazapine, in the human brain

Methoda B E F
A 4.7* 6.9* 7.1*
B   2.9* 2.5
E    0.5
  1. aSee the legend of Table 2 for a description of the methods. The nonparametric statistical comparison (z-scores) in the table reflects the degree of difference between the binding potential values provided by the methods being compared. *Akaike values obtained by the two methods differed significantly (two-tailed tests, Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons, p ≤ 0.0042). A nonsignificant z-score indicates that the Akaike values provided by the two methods did not differ reliably.
