  1. Mean T2-value (ms) at all time instances for all regions of interest (ROI), both with conventional supine MRI (uMRI) and with axial loading during MRI (alMRI). P-value (p) for the T2-value change between all time instances are displayed both with uMRI, alMRI as well as the change between (uMRI-alMRI)
