PET imaging for lung cancer helps monitor treatment response
Research shows that positron emission tomography (PET) might allow clinicians to better monitor atezolizumab treatments in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. The findings came from a study that focused on immunotherapy but also supports the potential for PET as a way to assess various treatment effects and prognosis.
