PURPOSE To conduct a prospective comparison of the accuracy of short inversion time (TI) inversion-recovery (STIR) turbo spin-echo (SE) imaging and coregistered 2-[fluorine-18] fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET) with computed tomography (CT) (coregistered FDG-PET/CT) to assess the N-stage in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 115 consecutive NSCLC patients prospectively underwent CT, STIR turbo SE imaging, and FDG-PET… CONTINUE READING
