|Predominant color of the cortex in sonoelastography with respect to healthy and metastatic LNs|
|Cortex||Group 1 healthy LNs n=165||Group 2 metastatic LNs n=15||p (pairwise comparison)|
|p-value (multivariate analysis)||0.006|
The cortex of metastatic LNs is significantly harder and therefore significantly more often described as blue than the cortex of healthy LNs. (n.s. = not significant, n.a. = not applicable, LN = lymph node).
