Figure 7

Caliper-measured paw thickness versus other hindlimb volumetry modalities.

(a–j) Linear correlations (a,c,e,g,i) and Bland-Altman plots (b,d,f,h,j) comparing caliper-measured paw thickness with other hindlimb volumetry modalities. The caliper correlated well with 3D volumetry (a–f) but no or low correlation with planimetry (g,h) and circumferential length (i,j) was recorded. Importantly, hindlimb ratios based on paw thickness were higher than those calculated with the other modalities (n = 48 for μCT, MRI, hrUS, MRI circumference and caliper; n = 42 for planimetry; day 3–10 = black to bright grey circles; non-operated control limbs = white circles; dashed line = mean difference between ratios; dotted line = double standard deviation).
