Table 4 Correlations between durometry and mRSS versus skin thickness (biopsies)

From: Durometry as an alternative tool to the modified Rodnan’s skin score in the assessment of diffuse systemic sclerosis patients: a cross-sectional study

  Skin Thickness (forearm)
Total scores Forearm scores
r (p) r (p)
mRSS #1 0.95 (< 0.001) 0.85 (0.005)
mRSS #2 0.63 (0.08) −0.13 (0.75)
Durometry #1 0.86 (0.005) 0.80 (0.014)
Durometry #2 0.88 (0.003) 0.85 (0.006)
  1. In the left column, skin thickness from the forearm is correlated with total mRSS and durometry scores. On the right column, forearm skin thickness is correlated with forearm mRSS and durometry. Analysis by Spearman’s test. mRSS: modified Rodnan’s skin score; #1 and #2 indicate investigator 1 and 2, respectively
