  • * Lesions were benign.

  • False-positive, a case of sclerosing mediastinitis.

  • ACL = adenocarcinoma of the lung; SmCCL = small-cell carcinoma of the lung; SqCCL = squamous cell carcinoma of the lung; ACM = adenocarcinoma of the mediastinum; SqCCM = squamous cell carcinoma of the mediastinum; MM = mediastinal mass diagnosed as sclerosing mediastinitis on biopsy; IDCB = invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast; IT = invasive thymoma; S = surgery; R = radiotherapy; C = chemotherapy; LN = lymph node. Bold numbers in columns 4 and 5 represent higher L/B ratio in the paired values.
