Table 3 Correlations between presence of distant metastasis and PET parameters

From: Volumetric parameters on 18F-FDG PET/CT predict the survival of patients with gastric cancer associated with their expression status of c-MET

Variables Locoregional Distant metastasis P-values
SUVmax (mean ± SD) 8.3 ± 5.60 9.3 ± 6.96 0.555
SUVpeak (mean ± SD) 6.8 ± 4.77 7.5 ± 5.58 0.608
MTV (ml, mean ± SD) 59.4 ± 68.72 56.0 ± 42.37 0.812
TLG (g, mean ± SD) 349.4 ± 514.37 313.0 ± 339.19 0.742
