This study was performed to investigate the feasibility of FDG- and L-[methyl-11C]methionine (Met)-PET for the follow up of lung cancer after stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT). Nine patients (pt) with solitary lung cancer underwent SRT. Met- and FDG-PET studies were performed one week before SRT and from one week to 8 months after SRT. Responses to SRT were complete in 2 pt and partial in 7 pt. Met- and FDG-PET scan showed high tracer uptake in all tumors before SRT. After SRT, standardized… CONTINUE READING
