Table 3 Comparison of18F-FDG-PET/CT results between the NWL and NWO subjects

From: Subclinical vascular inflammation in subjects with normal weight obesity and its association with body Fat: an 18 F-FDG-PET/CT study

  Total (N = 164) NWL (N = 82) NWO (N = 82) p-value
SUVmean, jugular vein 1.15 ± 0.22 1.16 ± 0.23 1.15 ± 0.22 0.745
SUVmean, carotid artery 1.59 ± 0.32 1.53 ± 0.31 1.64 ± 0.31 0.024
SUVmax, carotid artery 1.83 ± 0.38 1.75 ± 0.36 1.90 ± 0.38 0.009
TBRmean, carotid artery 1.39 ± 0.19 1.33 ± 0.16 1.45 ± 0.19 <0.001
TBRmax, carotid artery 1.60 ± 0.25 1.52 ± 0.23 1.67 ± 0.25 <0.001
  1. NWL, normal weight lean; NWO, normal weight obesity; N, number; SUVmean/max, mean/maximum standardized uptake value; TBRmean/max, mean/maximum target-to-background ratio. Data are presented as mean ± SD. The p values represent differences between groups determined by the independent two-sample t-test.
