原始语种摘要: OBJECTIVES The aim of our study was to analyze the specificity and sensitivity of integrated positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) in detecting nodal metastasis according to histology (adenocarcinoma vs squamous cell carcinoma), and to identify the factors related to false-negative findings. METHODS A retrospective, single-institution review of 353 consecutive patients with suspected or pathologically proven, potentially resectable non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who had integrated PET/CT scanning at the same centre. Lymph node staging was pathologically confirmed on tissue specimens obtained at mediastinoscopy and/or thoracotomy. Statistical evaluation of PET/CT results was performed on a per-patient and per-nodal-station basis. RESULTS A total of 2286 nodal...
