Purpose: Increased tumor metabolism and hypoxia are related to poor prognosis in solid tumors, including non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PET imaging is a noninvasive technique that is frequently used to visualize and quantify tumor metabolism and hypoxia. The aim of this study was to perform an extensive comparison of tumor metabolism using 2[F]fluoro-2… (More)
