Table 2 Univariate analysis of relationship of variables to SUVmax in the raw scale

From: Relationship between tumor mutational burden and maximum standardized uptake value in 2-[18F]FDG PET (positron emission tomography) scan in cancer patients

  Unit increase in SUVmax compared to reference, univariate model (95% CI) P value univariate
TMB 0.06 (0.02, 0.09) 0.002
Age (years) 0.04 (− 0.03, 0.11) 0.3
Men (N = 117) − 0.40 (− 2.27, 1.47) 0.7
Women (N = 156) Reference
Melanoma (N = 15) 1.97 (− 2.73, 6.67) 0.4
Lung cancer (N = 61) 2.20 (− 1.02, 5.41)
Gastrointestinal (N = 36) Reference
Breast (N = 43) − 0.58 (− 4.03, 2.88)
Other (N = 118) 0.77 (− 2.14, 3.68)
  1. *Higher TMB was significantly correlated with increased SUVmax
