OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical significance of the sum of the maximum standardized uptake value (sumSUVmax) on pretreatment positron emission tomography/computed tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET/CT) in newly diagnosed small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 145 SCLC patients from March 2005 to June 2013 who underwent pretreatment (18)F-FDG-PET/CT. The sumSUVmax was assessed in all malignant lesions up to a maximum of 5 lesions and a… CONTINUE READING
