Table 3 Median lesion SUVmax and discordant lesions by location

From: Gallium-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen ([68Ga]Ga-PSMA-11) PET for imaging of thyroid cancer: a feasibility study

Location Median PSMA SUVmax (range) Median FDG SUVmax (range) Number of discordant lesions/total lesions
Bones 10.1 (3.5–18.3) 11.7 (3.9–28.4) 8/19 (PSMA −, FDG +), 2/19 (FDG−, PSMA +)
Lymph nodes 7.8 (2.0–12.6) 5.9 (5.3–10.4) 4/5 (PSMA −, FDG +)
Lungs 2.6 (1.6–4.5) 4.2 (2.5–19.1) 2/5 (PSMA −, FDG +)
Soft tissue: other 15.8 (6.2–27.7) 14.2 (3.5–31.4) 0/6
Thyroid bed 6.0 (5.7–6.3) 14.3 (13.8–14.3) 1/3 (PSMA −, FDG +)
  1. Soft tissues are subdivided into lungs (most common) and “other.” “Other” locations consisted of: scalp, dura, adrenal, paraspinous tissues, and pancreas
