Quantitative classification based on CT histogram analysis of non-small cell lung cancer: correlation with histopathological characteristics and recurrence-free survival.

Abstract

PURPOSE Quantification of the CT appearance of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is of interest in a number of clinical and investigational applications. The purpose of this work is to present a quantitative five-category (α, β, γ, δ, and ɛ) classification method based on CT histogram analysis of NSCLC and to determine the prognostic value of this… (More)
