OBJECTIVE To date, quantitative assessment of tumor vascularity using perfusion CT has been limited to a single tumor level, with the potential for measurement error in heterogeneous tumors. We aimed to determine if greater z-axis tumor coverage improves the reproducibility of perfusion CT measurements in lung cancer. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Paired perfusion studies were performed on 10 patients who had histologically confirmed advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Using 16-MDCT, multiple… CONTINUE READING
