Table 5 C-Statistics: Additive prognostic value of the LVGFI over LVEF

From: Left ventricular global function index assessed by cardiovascular magnetic resonance for the prediction of cardiovascular events in ST-elevation myocardial infarction

Variable C-statistic/AUC (95 % CI) P
MACE:   
 LVGFI 0.685 (0.651-0.717) 0.25
 LVEF 0.707 (0.774-0.739)
Mortality:   
 LVGFI 0.732 (0.700-0.763) 0.05
 LVEF 0.652 (0.617-0.685)
Reinfarction:   
 LVGFI 0.680 (0.646-0.712) 0.19
 LVEF 0.654 (0.619-0.687)
Heart failure:   
 LVGFI 0.691 (0.658-0.723) 0.13
 LVEF 0.734 (0.701-0.764)
  1. AUC = area under the curve, CI = confidence interval, LVGFI = left ventricular global function index
  2. LVEF = left ventricular ejection fraction, MACE = major adverse cardiac events
