Multivariate analysis for cardiovascular events (logistic regression analysis)

Final modelCardiovascular event c-index (95% CI)Binary R2
Model 30.729 (0.706 to 0.776)0.153
Model 40.720 (0.689 to 0.763)0.144
Model 50.717 (0.686 to 0.758)0.138

  • Cardiovascular disease risk factors have been removed from the models step by step.

  • Model 3 included liver brightness, study group, age, gender, smoking, alcohol consumption, systolic blood pressure, LDL-cholesterol level, body mass index and QUICKI. Model 4 included liver brightness, age, gender, smoking, blood pressure and QUICKI. Model 5 included liver brightness, age, gender, smoking and blood pressure. Model 1 included liver brightness, study group, age and gender. C-index with CIs obtained from 250 bootstrap resamplings and binary R2 was used.

  • LDL, low-density lipoprotein; QUICKI, quantitative insulin sensitivity check index.
