Table 4 Correlation of baseline SUVmax and TLuG with 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) Baseline SUVmax Baseline TLuG
ΔFVC 0.460 (p = 0.016) 0.323 (p = 0.100)
ΔFEV1 0.344 (p = 0.079) 0.430 (p = 0.025)
ΔDLCOca 0.513 (p = 0.010) 0.453 (p = 0.026)
  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
  2. aThree missing values
