Table 2 Mean K1 values for the investigated input functions

From: Estimation of renal perfusion based on measurement of rubidium-82 clearance by PET/CT scanning in healthy subjects

  LVBP AA (FOV-A) AA (FOV-B)
Right kidney 2.75 ± 0.42 2.86 ± 0.48* 2.82 ± 0.45^
Left kidney 2.71 ± 0.42 2.82 ± 0.45* 2.79 ± 0.42^
  1. Data are presented as means ± SD. K1 units are ml/min/cm3
  2. Paired t-test *NS vs. K1 values derived from LVBP
  3. ^NS vs. K1 values obtained from AA (FOVA)
  4. LVBP, left ventricular blood pool; AA, abdominal aorta; FOV-A, field of view A; FOV-B, field of view B; NS, non-significant
