Table 3 Correlation of the change in SUVmax and TLuG with the change in lung function parameters, n = 27

From: Quantification of pulmonary disease activity in sarcoidosis measured with 18F-FDG PET/CT: SUVmax versus total lung glycolysis

Correlation tested R (p value) ΔSUVmax ΔTLuG
ΔFVC − 0.497 (p = 0.008) − 0.430 (p = 0.025)
ΔFEV1 − 0.467 (p = 0.014) − 0.532 (p = 0.004)
ΔDLCOc − 0.391 (p = 0.059) − 0.423 (p = 0.039)
  1. Δ change before and after infliximab therapy, FVC forced vital capacity, FEV1 forced expiratory volume in 1 s, DLCOc diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide corrected for haemoglobin, SUVmax maximum standardized uptake value, TLuG total lung glycolysis
