Table 6 The comparision of metastatic and non-metastatic lymph nodes

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

  Metastatic (n = 14) Non-metastatic (n = 86) p
Tumor SUVmax 15.26 ± 6.02 16.5 ± 6.83 0.49
Lymph node SUVmax 5.35 ± 5.72 3.28 ± 1.19 0.06
T/LN SUVmax 3.73 ± 1.49 5.66 ± 3.32 0.01*
