The optimal methodology for defining response with 18F-FDG PET after curative-intent chemoradiation for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is unknown. We compared survival outcomes according to the criteria of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), PERCIST 1.0, the Peter Mac metabolic visual criteria, and the Deauville criteria, respectively. Methods: Three prospective trials of chemoradiation for NSCLC, involving baseline and posttreatment 18F-FDG PET/CT… CONTINUE READING
