Box and whisker plots showing MR signal intensity ratios, ADC values, and SUVmax in patients with NHLs and SCCs. Boundary of boxes closest to zero indicates 25th percentile, line within boxes indicates median, and boundary of boxes farthest from zero indicates 75th percentile. Error bars indicate smallest and largest values within 1.5 box lengths of 25th and 75th percentiles. a No significant difference in signal intensity ratios on T1–weighted images was found between NHLs (0.89 ± 0.09) and SCCs (0.96 ± 0.18) (p = 0.457). b No significant difference in signal intensity ratios on T2–weighted images was found between NHLs (1.10 ± 0.21) and SCCs (1.07 ± 0.25) (p = 0.813). c No significant difference in signal intensity ratios on diffusion-weighted images was found between NHLs (1.64 ± 0.68) and SCCs (1.13 ± 0.31) (p = 0.227). d ADC value was significantly lower in NHLs (0.61 ± 0.09 × 10−3 mm2/s) than in SCCs (0.95 ± 0.12 × 10−3 mm2/s) (p < 0.01). e No significant difference in signal in SUVmax was found between NHLs (20.8 ± 7.4) and SCCs (17.4 ± 5.4) (p = 0.517)
