18F-FDG PET offers the radiation oncology community the ability to incorporate biologic information into radiation therapy targets. To date, most of the work in this arena has involved patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The literature suggests that biologic targeting with PET alters the radiation treatment volume significantly in 30%-60% of NSCLC patients for whom definitive therapy is planned. This is mostly the result of the incorporation of regional nodes with 18F-FDG avidity… CONTINUE READING
