Compared with coronary artery calcification, LV hypertrophy was a stronger predictor for CHD death, other CV death, and heart failure (z-scores
: 5.4 versus 3.4, 6.8 versus 2.4, and 9.7 versus 3.2, respectively).
also continued to improve over 42 months and there was proportional growth between the upper and lower body segments.
These values were converted to z-scores
and included in the data analysis.
Weight status was assessed using the WHO weight-for-length z-scores
growth charts, which are age- and sex- specific (13).
The researchers divided 40 adolescents aged between 10 and 17 into two groups, each with ten boys and ten girls: an overweight group with BMI-for-age Z-scores
of +1 or +2 and an obese group with Z-scores
were -1.0[+ or -]1.1, -0.3[+ or -]1.0, and -0.3[+ or -]1.2, respectively.
were calculated according to the bone marrow density (BMD) values of healthy children by using the following formula:
All low financial ratios lead to low Z-scores
in the model.
A new fetal echo reporting module provides MFM specialists with comprehensive measurements including Dopper, 2D and performance indices with associated z-scores
, expanded fetal anatomy table with cardiac specific items, and fields for optimal evaluation of suspected fetal cardiac abnormalities.
The body mass index z-scores
were calculated as the measures of relative weight, adjusted for the child's age and sex.
The differences between the ratings of the target and control words were converted to z-scores
. The main finding was highly signifcant hitting among a subgroup of Ps who claimed they felt their hand being moved by an outside force 1-40% of the time during the session.
 Height-for-age and BMI [body mass index]-for-age z-scores
were calculated using the WHO Stata macros developed to assess data against the Child Growth Standards.
