Abstract: Background and purpose: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tumours are mostly heterogeneous. We hypothesized that areas within the turnout with a high pre-radiation F-18-deoxyglucose (FDG) uptake, could identify residual metabolic-active areas, ultimately enabling selective-boosting of turnout sub-volumes.
