Table 1 Liver function imaging parameter comparison between Child-Turcotte-Pugh A versus B/C patients

From: Measuring total liver function on sulfur colloid SPECT/CT for improved risk stratification and outcome prediction of hepatocellular carcinoma patients

  CTP A (n = 16) CTP B/C (n = 14) Classification cutoff Rank sum p
Functional liver volume ratio (of liver-GTV) 0.5 (0.4–0.6) 0.3 (0.2–0.4) 0.40 6 × 10−4
Mean liver-to-spleen uptake ratio 1.4 (0.9–1.6) 0.7 (0.6–0.8) 0.88 2 × 10−4
Total liver function (FLV * L/S mean) 0.6 (0.4–0.8) 0.2 (0.1–0.3) 0.35 6 × 10−5
  1. Median (interquartile range) values are reported for functional liver volume (FLV), mean liver-to-spleen uptake ratio, and total liver function for Child-Turcotte-Pugh class A and B/C groups. Statistically significant differences between CTP classes were estimated by Wilcoxon rank-sum testing (α = 0.05)
