In this session, Dr. Bridwell will review the major aspects of lung cancer, particularly the U.S. incidence and prevalence, stage at diagnosis, risks, survival rates, treatments and diagnostic approaches. He will also discuss the proper utilization of FDG PET/CT in Radiation Therapy Planning, Response assessment and Restaging of the disease and detail the specific application of FDG PET/CT in characterization of suspicious solitary pulmonary nodules and in the initial diagnosis and staging of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Finally, he will review the role of FDG PET/CT for specific patient groups, lesion types/sizes, and key imaging protocols (including partial volume effect and dual time-point imaging), as well as the challenges and limitations of the imaging modality for this disease indication.

This activity is approved for credit by the ASRT. To be eligible for CE credit you must register individually, attend the entire session and complete a post-webinar survey. Instructions to receive CEH (1.0) will be provided at conclusion of session.
