  1. SPES: Slaughterhouse Pleurisy Evaluation System; LLS: Consolidation Lung Lesion Score; IA: Image analyses; LW/BW: Ratio of lung weight/body weight. Mean values and range [Max-Min] of lung scoring within each of the SPES categories. p values lower than 0.05 means that the pair of lung scoring system is significantly associated. Different letter in superscript means statistically significant differences within SPES categories.
