the Naperian logarithm of [R.sub.1], presented a statistically significant linear relationship with Ln(CTx) (Naperian logarithm of CTx) (p = 0.067) and with the T-score (p = 0.018), as can be seen in the summary of the inferential results (Table 4).
Model Coefficients Standard error Descriptive level (p) Constant 0.300 0.147 0.053 * T-score -0.200 0.078 0.018 * Ln(CTx) 0.082 0.042 0.067 * Ln = Naperian logarithm of CTX.
Thus, it could be seen from the dispersion graph (Graph 1) that the relationship between the metabolic activity of the mandible ([R.sub.1]) and the CTX values among the diseased individuals (both expressed in the form of Naperian logarithms) presented statistical significance, with a descriptive level of p = 0.067 for this sample of 26 diseased patients.
