Serial 4DCT/4DPET imaging to predict and monitor response for locally-advanced non-small cell lung cancer chemo-radiotherapy.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE A FDG-PET/CT image feature with optimal prognostic potential for locally-advanced non-small cell lung cancer (LA-NSCLC) patients has yet to be identified, and neither has the optimal time for FDG-PET/CT response assessment; furthermore, nodal features have been largely ignored in the literature. We propose to identify image features… CONTINUE READING
