Abstract

Positron Emission Tomography (PET)/Computed Tomography (CT) scanners pinpoint the location of cancer cells in people prior to and after treatment. This innovative study will use during treatment PET/CT scans to establish the response of lung tumours to radiation therapy (RT). We will use these scans to simulate the delivery of highly targeted, individualised RT and to predict patient prognosis, with the ultimate aim of increasing survival and minimising side effects in patients with lung cancer
