Table 2 Bulge height and compression force regression analysis

From: Effective radiation attenuation calibration for breast density: compression thickness influences and correction

Independent variable Dependent variable R-square Intercept Slope
compression force bulge height (hm) 0.84 0.069 cm 0.002 cm/N
  1. This gives the regression summary for the 35 water filled phantom images. It shows the bulge height (hm) is approximately a linear function of compression force.
