[18F]Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography screening for lung cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Although low-dose computed tomography (CT) is a recommended modality for lung cancer screening in high-risk populations, the role of other modalities, such as [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (PET), is unclear. We conducted a systematic review to describe the role of PET in lung cancer screening. MATERIALS… (More)
