AIM To evaluate the clinical usefulness of quantitative dual-energy (DE) computed tomography (CT) iodine enhancement metrics combined with morphological CT features in distinguishing small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) from non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and six untreated lung cancer patients who underwent DECT before biopsy or surgery were prospectively enrolled. Twenty-seven routine CT descriptors, including tumour location, size, shape, margin, enhancement… CONTINUE READING
