Table 4 Size of primary tumor and relationship with distant metastasis in patients who had primary resection

From: A critical review of the chest CT scans performed to detect asymptomatic synchronous metastasis in new and recurrent breast cancers

Metastasis on SI n Mean tumor size (mm) (SD, range)
Yes 6* 38.3 (10.3, range 25–50)
No 251 29.7 (18.3, range 3–130)
  1. Difference in mean tumor size is 8.7 mm (95% CI − 6.1–23.5) which was not significant (p > 0.05)
  2. *All RBCs and ABCs without primary resection were not included in this analysis
