  1. Table 2 summarizes the variables which significantly increased the predictive value of the resulting regression model.
  2. † Odds ratios compare patients who consented with patients who failed to show up at a DBS-center. As an example, the Odds ratio of 2.32 indicates that the chance of a “consent” patient having an akinetic-rigid subtype is 2.32 times higher than the chance of a “refuser”
