Fig. 3

The distribution of MGS in TBLB-positive vs. TBLB-negative patients by HMC sampling. Small gray dots show the posterior probability distributions generated by HMC sampling. Large black dots indicate the data derived from 16 LAM patients without pulmonary lymphatic congestion. The width of TBLB-positive gray dots proportionally increased as the MGS increased whereas TBLB-negative gray dots showed the opposite relationship with MGS. Note that TBLB-positive patients primarily had MGS > 2. Abbreviations: HMC, Hamiltonian Monte Carlo; LAM, lymphangioleiomyomatosis; MGS, modified Goddard score; TBLB, transbronchial lung biopsy
