Table 3 Comparison of severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI) patients with and without symptoms of uncooperativeness in right hemisphere, left hemisphere, right thalamus, left thalamus, the laterality ratio of SUVmax for the left and right regions as LR ratio = SUVmaxleft/ SUVmaxright of hemisphere, and thalamus by glucose uptake based on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography

From: Association between uncooperativeness and the glucose metabolism of patients with chronic behavioral disorders after severe traumatic brain injury: a cross-sectional retrospective study
