  • aTwo patients received FDG without FLT and one received FLT without FDG. Hence, the total number of patients with or without FLT scans is 50.

  • bThirty-five patients had available tissue. However, for 1 patient, tissue was deemed unevaluable for KRAS mutation status.

  • cMedian SUVmax values reflect values corrected for lean body mass in each patient, whereas the range for individual lesions reflects the raw SUVmax value on the basis of the mean value obtained from clustering of the most intense voxel and the 6 voxels surrounding it. The median uncorrected SUVmax for lean body mass was 8.8 for FDG-PET and 4.2 for FLT-PET.
