|Patient #||Age, yrs||Sex||PiB PET/CT|
|Maximal LV Myocardium-Blood Cavity Ratio||Mean LV Myocardium-Blood Cavity Ratio|
The maximal SUV was defined as the maximal SUV in all of the VOIs analyzed. The mean SUV was defined as the mean SUV of the total voxels in the VOIs. The maximal/mean myocardium to blood cavity ratio was defined as the maximal/mean SUV of the myocardial VOIs divided by the mean SUV of the descending thoracic aorta VOIs.
CT = computed tomography; LV = left ventricular; PET = positron emission tomography; PiB = Pittsburgh B; SUV = standard uptake value; VOI = volume of interest.
