From: The relation between the blood glucose level and the FDG uptake of tissues at normal PET examinations

  1. Sixty-two patients with increased blood glucose concentrations (≥7.0 mmol/l) were compared with 62 patients matched with regard to age and gender, with normal blood glucose (≤6.0 mmol/l) levels. ns, not significant.
