Abstract

Objective No investigation has been conducted on the association between PET findings and serum Cyfra 21.1 and CEA levels in nonsmall cell lung cancers (NSCLC). The purpose of this study is to find out if the serum levels of Cyfra 21.1 and CEA are related to metabolic parameters by FDG PET in patients with NSCLC who had not received treatment.
