Predictive value of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake by positron emission tomography for non-small cell lung cancer patients treated with radical radiotherapy.


The purpose of this study is to assess predictive value of the positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-fluoro-deoxyglucose (FDG) for recurrence and survival after radiotherapy (RT) for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). One hundred forty-nine patients underwent pretreatment PET (n = 67) or PET/computed tomography (CT) (n = 82) and definitive RT for… (More)
