Lung cancer is the leading cancer death for both men and women. PET/CT imaging, which provides whole-body functional and anatomic information in one imaging session of 20-25 min, is the standard imaging tool for managing lung cancer patients for surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these treatments. In collaboration with an industry partner, we are embarking on new research and development to improve PET/CT imaging of lung tumors.
