Abstract: To define the optimal time point for the integration of hypoxia (18)F-FAZA-PET/CT information into radiotherapy treatment planning to benefit from hypoxia modification or dose escalation treatment. Therefore, we performed a prospective cohort study, using serial hypoxic imaging ((18)F-FAZA-PET/CT) prior to and at several time-points during (chemo)radiotherapy (CHRT) in six head and neck squamous cell (HNSCC) and six non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients.
