Main description:

The target for such a publication is all those involved in the day to day management of lung cancer; respiratory physicians, surgeons, oncologists, radiotherapists and radiologists.

The nodal anatomy will be outlined and TNM staging clearly explained. Additionally the book will show how PET/CT should fit into the staging algorithm. TNM stage changes as a result of PET/CT will be illustrated in great detail by the use of many images from real case scenarios.

The value of PET/CT in assessing solitary pulmonary nodules and mediastinal nodes will be considered in separate chapters. The staging of non small cell lung cancer will be central to the text with a strong emphasis on PET/CT images and the surgical and/or oncological management stage by stage.


Introduction to the basics of PET/CT.- Assessment and management of the solitary pulmonary nodule.- Assessment and management of mediastinal adenopathy.- Staging of Non small call lung cancer.- Radiotherapy planning.- Future Tracer technology.- Physics of FDG PET and other tracers
