Objective: To search for a simple practical and appropriate instrument for the assessment of depression among Thai SCI patients: comparison between two self-rating instruments. Material and Method: Eighty-three SCI patients were asked to complete a questionnaire composed of the Thai depression inventory TDI and the Center for Epidemiological studies Depression scale CES-D, Thai version. All subjects were interviewed by a psychiatrist and were Diagnosed according to the categories of depression of the Diagnostic and statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition, DSM-IV. Statistics: Receiver Operating Characteristic ROC curve and Logistic regression analysis. Results: Twenty patients were confirmed to have a depressed mood or adjustment disorder. The area under the ROC curve for the CES-D and TDI was 0.827. The sensitivities and specificities of the CES-D and TDI were 80.0. 69.8 percent and 70.0, 79.4 percent respectively.The positive predictive value and negative predicitive value of the two tests were 45.7, 91.7 percent and 51.9, 89.3 percent. Using Logistic regression analysis, the CES-D produces a better model than the TDI Chi-square value=23.196 and 4.578. Conclusion: The CES-D is more appropriate for screening for depression in SCI patients than the TDI.
