Help to Decide test for Medical Research Data.

Postby AbhishekSPSS » Sat Feb 08, 2014 12:02 pm

Hello ,

I am Using SPSS on Windows 8 and SPSS Version 20.

I have data regarding the Femur bone fracture strength on patients with Hip and knee prosthesis .

I need to determine if the distance between the tips of the prosthesis has an effect on the fracture strength(continuous) . there are 3 fixed distances (i.e : nominal variable).

Also have data regarding the Bone mass density want to analyse if this has an effect too.

So what tests would be suitable for this analysis.

Thanks for your help.

Moderator thanks for your response.


For the second part I need to decide whether the specific parameters of each bone (cortical thickness, cortical area,
bone mineral densities) influence the comparison. Could you suggest an appropriate test.
