Background: Many patients with stage I-Ill small cell lung cancer (SCLC) experience disease progression short after the completion of concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CRT). The purpose of the current study was to evaluate whether CT or FOG metabolic response early after the start of chemotherapy, but before the beginning of chest RT, is predictive for survival in SCLC.
