Table 2 Descriptive statistics (mean ± standard deviation) of calculated parameters in the ACLT (N = 12) and Control (N = 16) groups (data reconstructed with FDK and all projections), and the statistical differences within them. Statistical difference was tested with non-parametric Mann-Whitney testing (exact), p-values listed as one-tailed (two-tailed).
