Table 2 Comparison of MRI-derived LV diameter and wall thickness in control and diabetic mice.

From: Early myocardial dysfunction in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice: a study using in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

  Control (n = 8) Diabetic (n = 12) P value
Internal diameter, diastole (mm) 3.4 ± 0.1 3.6 ± 0.1 NS
Internal diameter, systole (mm) 1.8 ± 0.1 2.4 ± 0.1 < 0.001
Wall thickness, diastole (mm) 1.01 ± 0.05 0.85 ± 0.03 < 0.01
Wall thickness, systole (mm) 1.51 ± 0.06 1.19 ± 0.05 < 0.001
