Abstract: Background: Follow-up of patients treated with curative intent for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with X-ray or CT-scans is of unproven value. Furthermore, most patients with progressive disease present with symptoms outside of follow-up visits. Because the accuracy of (18)FDG-PET-CT is superior to CT, we hypothesised that FDG-PET-CT scans 3 months post-treatment could lead to early detection of progressive disease (PD) amenable for radical treatment.
