STUDY OBJECTIVES The survival of patients with surgically resected stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is not optimal, probably because of unsuspected systemic occult tumor dissemination. The current applied technologies and methods for scanning the body and examining lymph nodes for tumor cells have broadly recognized limitations. Several studies have reported that it is possible to detect occult lymph node metastases (micrometastases) using more sensitive methods such as… CONTINUE READING
