The differences between QUS parameters obtained with and without loading (Pvalues of Paired-Samples T-test)
Paired-Samples Group 0 Group 1 Group 2 Group 3
wl_nBUA Vs. l_nBUA p = 0.002a p = 0.007a p = 0.001a p = 0.009a
wl_SOS Vs. l_SOS p = 0.899 p = 0.024a p = 0.210 p < 0.001a
wl_STI Vs. l_STI p = 0.017a p = 0.270 p = 0.296 p = 0.126

The prefixes ‘l_’ and ‘wl_’ mean “loading” and “without loading”, respectively

a There is significant difference between Paired-Samples.
