Left: Results illustrate the number of 1000 randomly-generated datasets in which the indicated timepoint after the administration of FDG exhibited maximum discrimination between the infected and uninfected experimental groups. Right: Results illustrate the proportion of “cut-off” ratios (surgical vs. non-surgical limb) that exhibited optimal discrimination at the alternative timepoints shown. Note that >850 of 1000 “iterations” found the optimum timepoint to be 11 minutes after administration of FDG (left) and that the optimal SUR cutoff in the majority of these was ∼1.27.
