Table 3 Relative SUVmax differences - TOF vs. non-TOF

From: The association of tumor-to-background ratios and SUVmax deviations related to point spread function and time-of-flight F18-FDG-PET/CT reconstruction in colorectal liver metastases

Difference PSF + TOF vs. PSF 3D-OSEM + TOF vs. 3D-OSEM
Low TBR High TBR Low TBR High TBR
  ** n.s. ** n.s.
Median 10.4 1.8 8.6 −0.1
IQR 3.1 to 19.0 −0.8 to 5.5 3.3 to 14.8 −6.0 to 2.4
Range 1.0 to 27.2 −16.7 to 27.9 −5.9 to 17.5 −13.9 to 24.0
  1. Median, IQR, and range of relative SUVmax differences between TOF and non-TOF algorithms displayed separately for low (<4.8) and high (>4.8) TBR. Wilcoxon test: n.s., not significant; **P < 0.01.
