Non-conventional imaging of lung cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This presentation discusses the optimum magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence for lung cancer assessment in a clinical setting, and the sensitivity and specificity of MRI (alone and in combination with diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI)-MR) compared with those of computed tomography (CT) and fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (PET) for lung cancer staging. The role of perfusion studies (by CT or MRI), of DWI-MRI, blood oxygenation level dependent sequences and PET in defining the aggressiveness of lung tumours and in evaluating the response to radiochemotherapy is also discussed.
