Physical therapy and hip osteoarthritis--reply.


of less than 0.7 conveys poor discrimination. However, in the multivariable analysis, the standard uptake valuewas associated with survival. It is not surprising that no difference was detected in survival between groups because the major role of PET is to detectmetastatic disease thatwould preclude hepatic resection.Hofmanandcolleagues correctly observe that 90% of patients in both groups had surgery, which also argues against routine performance of PET-CT.
