Direct comparison of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) recurrence evaluation among these four methods in large prospective cohort more than 400 patients had not been reported. We hypothesize that whole-body MRI as well as PET/MRI had better potential for postoperative NSCLC recurrence than PET/CT and standard radiological examination in large prospective cohort. The purpose of this study was thus to compare the diagnostic performance of whole-body MRI, PET/MRI, PET/CT and standard radiological examination for postoperative NSCLC recurrence assessment in large prospective cohort more than 400 patients.
