Protocol publication

[…] Quantitative data are presented as mean ± standard deviation (SD) or median (min-max) if necessary. Weighted kappa was used for inter-observer agreement and agreement between PET data sets. The node/background ratios were compared using the non-parametric Mann-Whitney test for paired samples. The sizes of the largest metastasis depending on the status for WB PET and HN PET were compared using the Kruskal–Wallis rank sum test. Statistical significance was defined as P<0.05. Prism (GraphPad software) and Vassar University clinical research calculators were used for graphs and statistics (http://vassarstats.net/). Receiver-Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was performed with Medcalc (version 11.6.1). The areas under the curve (AUC) were compared using the Hanley test. […]
