Excerpt

FDG-PET/CT is the current mainstay of lung cancer staging and presents favorable sensitivity and specificity in comparison to morphological diagnostic means especially for mediastinal lymph-node assessment. However, high physiological uptake in the brain requires additional cerebral magnetic resonance imaging to complete M-staging. Although not a major limitation, the dependency of FDG on blood sugar and the need of preparatory fasting and to recline during the 1-h uptake phase is inconvenient, hampering smooth patient workflow [ 1]. …
