AIM The aim of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic value of PET-CT scan for the prediction of EGFR mutation status and the contribution of TTF-1 expression to PET-CT scan. METHODS We retrospectively studied 218 cases with a diagnosis of pulmonary adenocarcinoma between 2012-2014 which underwent EGFR analysis, TTF-1 and PET-CT before treatment… CONTINUE READING
