Abstract

Background: The aim of our study was to evaluate the pattern of local failure after Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) of Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) lesions relating to different type of 18F-FDG Positron Emission Tomography (PET) response. Methods: Thirteen NSCLC patients for a total of 15 lesions (primary early or locally advanced and metastases) underwent PET before and 6 months after SBRT. Maximum Standard Uptake Value (SUVmax)
