Table 2 The probability of TBLB diagnostic positivity for LAM by level of MGS

From: Transbronchial lung biopsy for the diagnosis of lymphangioleiomyomatosis: the severity of cystic lung destruction assessed by the modified Goddard scoring system as a predictor for establishing the diagnosis

 Probability of diagnostic positivity for LAM95% credible interval
3 < MGS40.9100.897–0.921
2 < MGS30.8320.816–0.847
1 < MGS20.6060.586–0.626
0 < MGS10.3930.373–0.413
  1. The data was generated by Hamiltonian Monte Carlo sampling based on data from 16 LAM patients without lymphatic congestion
  2. 95% credible interval shows the 2.5 and 97.5% percentiles of distribution
