Table 2 Sensitivity for the detection of intraperitoneal lesions by PET and BLI depending on tumour size

From: Non-invasive imaging of implanted peritoneal carcinomatosis in mice using PET and bioluminescence imaging

Size of the lesion n Sensitivity PET Sensitivity BLI
   [%] [%]
0–2 mm 50 58 (29/50) 40(20/50)
>2–4 mm 18 88 (15/17) 47 (8/17)

Total 82 71 (58/82) 49 (40/82)
  1. The table shows the sensitivities for the detection of intraperitoneal lesions using PET and BLI with tumours of different sizes. There is a general correlation between lesion size and detection rate with both modalities
