BACKGROUND We investigated the relationship of standardized uptake values (SUVs) to radiobiological parameters, such a 25 s tumor control probability (TCP), to allow for quantitative prediction of tumor response based on SUVs from (18)F fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) before and after treatment for esophageal cancer.

OBJECTIVE To study whether subvolumes with a high pre-chemoradiotherapy (CRT) FDG uptake could identify residual metabolically-active volumes (MAVs) post-CRT within individual esophageal tumors. Accurate identification will allow simultaneous integrated boost to these subvolumes at higher risk to improve clinical outcomes. METHODS Twenty patients with(More)
