    The article presents medical studies related to prognosis. T. Berghmans and colleagues conclude that primary tumor standardized uptake value (SUVmax) measured on fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is of prognostic value for survival in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)....

    Objectives: Despite radical radiotherapy and chemotherapy (CT), the prognosis of locally advanced nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is poor. New prognostic indicators are being looked forward to improve the survival. [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake on PET/CT has been observed as a...

    3'-deoxy-3'-[18F]fluoro-L-thymidine (FLT) and 2'-deoxy-2'-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (FDG) are used to visualize proliferative and metabolic activity of tumors. In this study we aimed at evaluating the prognostic value of FLT and FDG uptake measured by positron emission tomography (PET) in patients...

    Purpose: Recent studies have demonstrated the relevance of 18F-FDG uptake as an independent prognostic factor for recurrence of operable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This corresponds with the experimental finding that FDG uptake correlates with the proliferative activity of tumour cells...

    N staging is a key factor for the choice of treatment modalities in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. Both of the noninvasive and invasive N staging procedures have their own limitations.

    The integral role of positron-emission tomography (PET) using the glucose analog tracer fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) in the staging of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is well established. Evidence is emerging for the role of PET in response assessment to neoadjuvant therapy,...

    The article presents a case study in which a staging hybrid F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT in a 78-year-old man with bone metastases from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) revealed markedly focal FDG uptake in multiple vertebrae. Follow-up PET/CT showed a...

  • Influence of Body Mass Index on the Prognostic Value of Tumor ¹⁸F-FDG Uptake in Stage I Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. Hyun, Seung Hyup; Lee, Kyung-Han; Choi, Joon Young; Kim, Byung-Tae; Kim, Jhingook; Zo, Jae Ill; Kim, Hojoong; Kwon, O. Jung; Ahn, Hee Kyung // PLoS ONE;12/18/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 12, p1 

    Background: The impact of host energy balance status on outcome of lung cancer has not been fully explored. It is also unknown if there is a potential modifying effect of body mass index (BMI) on tumor cell behavior in patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We therefore...
