  1. aPituitary SUV values available in three children only, as it could not be estimated in seven children because of an inability to reliably delineate the pituitary from the surrounding lymphoid tissue/circular venous plexus in these children. CI confidence intervals; SD standard deviation; SUV standard uptake value.
