Table 2 Diagnostic performance of 18F-fluorocholine PET/CT and conventional imaging modalities

From: The role of 18F-FCH PET/CT in patients with uremic hyperparathyroidism compared with 99mTc-sestaMIBI SPECT/CT and ultrasonography

 Sensitivity (%)Specificity (%)Accuracy (%)PPV (%)NPV (%)
18F-FCH PET/CT84.13*,**10086.49*,**10052.38
99mTc-sestaMIBI SPECT/CT63.4990.9167.5797.5630.3
Ultrasonography61.981.8264.8695.1227.27
  1. *The lesion-based sensitivity and accuracy of 18F-FCH PET/CT were significantly higher than those of 99mTc-MIBI SPECT/CT (P = 0.008; P = 0.006)
  2. **The lesion-based sensitivity and accuracy of 18F-FCH PET/CT were significantly higher than those of ultrasonography (P = 0.005; P = 0.006)
