  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.
