Table 2 This table shows the mean standardized uptake values (SUV) of the liver parenchyma, aortic blood pool, and skeletal muscle with their corresponding tissue-to-blood ratios (TBR), as well as the time corrected liver-to-blood-ratio (LBR) for patients with normal liver parenchyma and patients with different stages of liver fibrosis according to the METAVIR classification

From: In vivo confirmation of altered hepatic glucose metabolism in patients with liver fibrosis/cirrhosis by 18F-FDG PET/CT
