Table 4 Patient based diagnostic accuracies of FDG-PET/CT and CECT for detecting BM

From: Brain metastases assessment by FDG-PET/CT: can it eliminate the necessity for dedicated brain imaging?

BM Sensitivity Specificity PPV NPV Accuracy
PET/CT 78.13 92.65 83.33 90.0 88%
CECT 81.25 94.12 86.67 91.43 90%
