OBJECTIVE We sought to assess whether the standard uptake value of a pulmonary nodule is an independent predictor of biologic aggressiveness. METHODS This is a retrospective review of a prospective database of patients with non-small cell lung cancer. Patients had dedicated positron emission tomography scanning with F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose, with the maximum standard uptake value measured. All suspicious nodal and systemic locations on computed tomographic and positron emission tomographic… CONTINUE READING
