From: The clinical usefulness of extravascular lung water and pulmonary vascular permeability index to diagnose and characterize pulmonary edema: a prospective multicenter study on the quantitative differential diagnostic definition for acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome

Figure 7

Receiver operating characteristic curves for pulmonary vascular permeability index and intrathoracic blood volume. Receiver operating characteristic curves for pulmonary vascular permeability index (PVPI) and intrathoracic blood volume (ITBV) on the day of enrollment for the differential diagnosis of acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome. The area under the curve for PVPI (0.886; confidence interval, 0.836 to 0.935) was significantly larger than that for ITBI (0.425; confidence interval, 0.359 to 0.529; P < 0.01). PVPI-0, pulmonary vascular permeability index on the day of enrollment; ITBV-0, intrathoracic blood volume on the day of enrollment.
