Table 2 Sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, predictive positive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV) of MDCT and MRI in the evaluation of mandibular involvement

From: Multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the evaluation of the mandibular invasion by squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) of the oral cavity. Correlation with pathological data

  MDCT MRI
Sensitivity 79% [11/14] 93% [13/14]
Specificity 82% [18/22] 82% [18/22]
Accuracy 81,0% [29/36] 86% [31/36]
PPV 73% [11/15] 76% [13/17]
NPV 86% [18/21] 95% [18/19]
  1. Note. In the blanket parenthesis are presents the numbers used for the percentuals
  2. Percentages may not total 100 because of rounding. The differences between MDCT and MRI were not statistically significant (p > .05)
