From: Measurement of lateral ventricle volume of normal infant based on magnetic resonance imaging

  1. After implementation of Lenene homogeneity test of variance for both groups of data (F = 2.854, p = 0.093), the independent sample t test was conducted for both groups. The total lateral ventricle volume of the male infant was larger than that of the female infant, wherein the difference was of statistical significance (t = 2.267, p < 0.05). For both male and female infants, the left side ventricle volume was larger than the right ventricle volume based on paired sample t test, wherein the difference was of statistical significance (male: t = 5.748, p < 0.01; female: t = 4.972, p < 0.01)
