Table 7 The comparision of metastatic, antracotic and reactive 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) Antracotic (n = 40) Reactive (n = 39) p
Tumor SUVmax 15.26 ± 6.02 16.28 ± 6.95 17.0 ± 7.24 0.78
Lymph node SUVmax 5.35 ± 5.72 2.98 ± 0.86 3.36 ± 1.09 0.04*
T/LN SUVmax 3.73 ± 1.49 5.70 ± 2.79 5.38 ± 2.8 0.02*
  1. *Statistically significant.
  2. -Tumor SUVmax, Lymph node SUVmax and T/LN SUVmax ratios were similar in antracotic and reactive lymph nodes (p > 0.05).
