No major repots have been evaluated the capability for therapeutic effect evaluation or prediction by chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) imaging and compared with FDG-PET/CT. We hypothesized that CEST imaging had equal or better potential for therapeutic effect evaluation and prediction in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with conservative therapy, when compared with FDG-PET/CT. The purpose of this study was to directly and prospectively compare the capability for prediction of therapeutic effect for chemoradiotherapy between CEST imaging and FDG-PET/CT in NSCLC patients.
