Table 4 Stepwise multiple linear regression analyses of factors significantly associated with the ICARS score

From: MRI-based cerebellar volume measurements correlate with the International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale score in patients with spinocerebellar degeneration or multiple system atrophy

Predictive factors for the ICARS score B SD p value

Domain III sub-score
 Midbrain AP/cranial AP diameter −31.384 13.837 0.026

  1. Stepwise multiple linear regression analyses were performed separately for the total score and each sub-score in the four domains. Age, sex, midbrain AP/cranial AP diameter, pons AP/cranial AP diameter, pons transverse/cranial AP diameter, cerebellar height/cranial AP diameter, and cerebellar volume/cranial AP diameter were used as dependent variables
  2. AP anteroposterior, SD standard deviation
