Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Name: 18F-FMISO Type: Drug
Name: PET/CT Type: Other
Overall Status
The purpose of this study is to help researchers investigate if a new imaging agent named 18F-FMISO can predict if patients with lung cancer will respond to standard therapy, as well as whether disease will reoccur in the future. The study will also investigate whether a 18F-FDG PET scan in the middle of radiation treatment can predict if lung cancer will respond to standard therapy. Information obtained from this study may help doctors design future studies on taking advantage of the low oxygen supply to the tumor tissue and improve outcomes in lung cancer patients.
