PET has gained a major role in the evaluation and treatment of lung cancer over the past two decades. Over that time span PET and treatment techniques have both evolved substantially. While technical changes in PET and PET/computed tomography have improved accuracy and reliability, the evolution toward increasingly targeted and intensive treatment has increased the reliance upon imaging of radiation treatment. This article seeks to review the current role of PET in the evaluation and treatment of lung cancer with radiation.
