  1. This table provides information about the spatial resolution measurements (in mm) by showing the distances from the four different hotspots to the four corresponding adjacent points (hotspot to ventral, dorsal, apical, and caudal spots), presented as mean ± standard deviation (SD), minimum (MIN), and maximum (MAX) values. In addition, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed to compare distance measurements between hotspots and adjacent mapping points, leading to the p values presented in the table. In this context, a p value of <0.05 was considered statistically significant
