Table 3 Correlation matrix for the relationships between age and 5 parameters for 26 patients <19 years of age

From: Assessment of bone mineral density by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry in patients with mucopolysaccharidoses

Age (n = 26) −0.511** −0.431* −0.422* −0.553** 0.262
  1. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01. Relationships were tested using Pearson’s r with Fisher’s r-z transformations (2-tailed).
  2. z score, standard deviation score; BMI, body mass index; BMD, bone mineral density; HAZ, height-for-age z score.
