We evaluated the feasibility to correlate intra-tumour heterogeneity as visualized on F-18-FDG PET with histology for NSCLC. For this purpose we used an ex-vivo model. The procedure was feasible in all operated patients. We have shown that this method is suitable for correlating intra-tumour heterogeneity in tracer uptake with histology.
