Hi,

Could you help me?

I'm translating a medical article about atrial fibrilation. The authors introduce their results as a list of findings. The title of this list: We reveled/detected/elicited the following facts:
1. A positive correlation between the diameter of left atrium with the fibrosis area in all the sites .... 2. ... etc.

Which word is better for a scientific medical article?

Thank you in advance for your help and comments!

    Elicit is the only word that I could see used in that context. However, I would say We share the following findings. Academics usually speak of findings, rather than facts. It takes numerous sets of findings for the entire scientific community to accept them as facts.
