Table 5 Size of lymph nodes and station involvement when associated lymph nodes were reported; sensitivity, specificity, predictive value, accuracy and likelihood ratio

From: Preoperative multidetector-row computed tomography scan staging for lymphatic gastric cancer spread

Characteristic Radiologically detected Pathologically infiltrated Sensitivity Specificity PPV NPV Accuracy LR (95% CI)
Stations with ≥3 lymph nodes radiologically detected, one of which was >10 mm 49 46 22.4 99.3 93.8 88.0 74.8 32.7 (10.31 to 104.0)
Patients with >3 lymph nodes >10 mm in neighboring stations 13 13 6.3 100 100 69.5 70.1 Not measurable
  1. LR, likelihood ratio; NPV, negative predictive value; PPV, positive predictive value.
