Figure 2 Correlation of amygdala/hippocampus ratios with clinical variables. (A–D) Amygdala/hippocampus ratios were associated with the duration of ATH/OSA disease, mean SaO2, percentage time of SaO2 <90%, and AHI in the ATH/OSA group. Line fitting for the associations of amygdala/hippocampus ratios with disease duration (A), mean SaO2 (B), percentage time of SaO2 <90% (C), and AHI (D). Mean SaO2 – mean oxygen saturation of arterial blood; amygdala/hippocampus ratios – A/H ratios, AHI – apnea-hypopnea index. Created using SPSS V.26 (IBM SPSS, Armonk, NY, USA).
