Abstract

Basic theory and clinical application for lung cancer of FDG-PET, which recently attract attention, is described. PET has original features different from morphological diagostic modalities, such as CT or MRI. For various objects including staging, diagosis of recurrence, monitoring therapeutic effect, screening etc., PET may be effective and probable to add information to conventional imaging modalities. As PET has some defects, examination should be performed with entire understanding for the character of FDG-PET.
