As part of the NSCLC diagnostic procedure performed at the University Hospital of Bordeaux (CHU Bordeaux; Haut-Lévèque), a 4D acquisition was performed in the radiotherapy treatment position, 50 minutes after i.v. injection of 3.7 MBq/kg 18-FDG, on a PET/CT integrated system (Discovery RX, General Electric Medical System) using the Real-time Position Management (RPM) device (Varian) and “Motion Free” software (General Electric Medical System). The respiratory cycle was rebinned in 6 phases. The lung tumors’ glucose uptake was calculated as the SUVmax normalized to tumor area.
