Table.1 Qualitative assessment of the lesions on 18F FDG PET-CT

From: The utility of the standardized uptake value, metabolic tumor volume and total lesion glycolysis as predictive markers of recurrent breast cancer

Reference FDG uptake Lesion FDG-avidity lower than mediastinal blood pool /liver (SUVmax less than or equal to 2.5 g/dl) Lesion avidity higher than mediastinal blood pool/liver (SUVmax more than to 2.5 g/dl)
Mediastinal blood pool (8) Negative lesion Positive lesion
Liver (9) Negative lesion Positive lesion
