AbstractObjectiveTo investigate the diagnostic value of whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including diffusion-weighted imaging with background signal suppression (DWIBS) for preoperative assessment of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in comparison to 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose 18FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT).MethodsThirty-three patients with suspected NSCLC were enrolled. Patients were examined before surgery with PET/CT and whole-body MRI including T1… CONTINUE READING
