Table 5 The PET/CT evaluation and presence of metastasis in mediastinal and hilar lymph node stations

From: The correlation of SUVmax with pathological characteristics of primary tumor and the value of Tumor/ Lymph node SUVmax ratio for predicting metastasis to lymph nodes in resected NSCLC patients

PET/CT Metastasis (+) Metastasis (-) Total
Positive§ 14 86 100
Negative 8 226 234
Total 22 312 334
  1. §A quantifiable SUVmax value is considered as positive.
  2. -The sensitivity of PET/CT: 63.6%, the specificity of PET/CT: 72.4%.
  3. -False positive lymph node ratio 86%, false negative lymph node ratio 3.4%.
