Table 4 Area under the curve (AUC), sensibility and specificity for ROC curves that identify subjects with cIMT ≥ 0.9 mm (p value < 0.05)

From: Lumbar spine bone mineral density and trabecular bone score-adjusted FRAX, but not FRAX without bone mineral density, identify subclinical carotid atherosclerosis

  Sensibility (%) Specificity (%) AUC (95%CI) p value
T- score lumbar spine 50 76 0.64 (0.52–0.76) 0.02
T- score femoral neck 40.6 89.6 0.67 (0.54–0.79 0.007
T- score total hip 23.3 92.8 0.65 (0.53–0.78) 0.01
FRAX BMD H 31.2 84 0.63 (0.51–0.76) 0.03
TBS adj-FRAX BMD H 50 72 0.64 (0.52–77) 0.01
TBS adj-FRAX BMD M 15.6 94.8 0.63 (0.50–0.75) 0.04
  1. For T-score values, the threshold was set at − 2.5
  2. For FRAX BMD H and TBS adj-FRAX H, the threshold was set at 3%
  3. For TBS adj-FRAX BMD M, the threshold was set at 20%
