Comparison of lesion-to-cerebellum uptake ratios and standardized uptake values in the evaluation of lung nodules with 18F-FDG PET.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical performance of the lesion-to-cerebellum uptake ratio (LCR), a semiquantitative index for differentiating malignant from benign lung nodules with [F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (F-FDG PET). METHODS Thirty-six patients (16 females, 20 males; median age, 73 years; range, 41-87 years) with 42 known or… (More)
