Table 1 ADC values of ROI covering the hippocampus and the dentate gyrus with corresponding volume changes in hippocampus

From: Increase in hippocampal water diffusion and volume during experimental pneumococcal meningitis is aggravated by bacteremia

  ADC hippocampus ADC dentate gyrus Volume (mm3) hippocampus
Uninfected controls 71.6 71.4 12.1
[70.0-73.0] [67.5-74.2] [11.0-12.9]
Meningitis 82.7 69.6 14.3
[74.7-89.1]* [65.2-80.7] [13.2-15.8]*
Meningitis, early onset bacteremia 93.8 72.3 15.8
[80.1-128.7]*,** [66.1-82.1] [13.7-18.1 ]*,**
Meningitis, attenuated bacteremia 75.7 70.8 11.8
  [71.8-82.2] [67.5-74.5] [10.4-14.1]
  1. Data are presented as medians with quartiles.
  2. Measurents of ROI, ADC and volume were performed on 2 coronal slices.
  3. *p < 0.05 compared to the uninfected control group.
  4. **p < 0.05 compared to the attenuated bacteremia group, Kruskal-Wallis test and Dunn’s post test.
