[…] Patient data are given as mean and standard deviation. Sample size for the comparison of CAIPIRINHA versus FLASH was estimated with the software G∗Power Version 3.1.9. [] as n = 38, based on a training data set of 10 patients (not included in the study) and the parameters α = 0.05, power = 0.95, and effect size 0.56. Kappa statistics according to the Landis and Koch schema were used to compare the interobserver agreement on image quality []. Image quality between study sequence and standard sequence was compared using the Wilcoxon matched-pair signed-rank test. Proportions on cross tabs were tested with the Chi-square test. All statistical tests were performed as two-sided tests with α = 0.05 and were computed with the IBM SPSS 21 software package for Windows. […]
