OBJECTIVE This retrospective analysis examined whether diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging might be as useful as positron emission tomography with fludeoxyglucose F 18 for (1) discriminating between non-small cell lung cancer and benign pulmonary nodules and (2) predicting aggressiveness of non-small cell lung cancer. METHODS Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography were performed before surgery in 110 patients with 124 pulmonary nodules smaller… CONTINUE READING
