In this prospective study, the investigators will evaluate and compare the usefulness of functional and volumetric informations obtained by 18F-FDG PET and MRI before and after the palliative chemotherapy with the aim of predicting tumor response and prognosis in patients with advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • DWI, DCE-MRI, and FDG PET as early predictor for response and prognosis [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary endpoint of this study is the prediction of one-year overall survival by monitoring the metabolic and functional responses of the tumor following one cycle of chemotherapy.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation among DWI, DCE-MRI, and FDG PET and relationship with prognosis [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Correlation among metabolic response, functional response on MRI, and standard anatomic response using the RECIST criteria

  • Correlation among DWI, DCE-MRI, and FDG PET and relationship with prognosis [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (i) the correlation among metabolic response, functional response on MRI, and standard anatomic response using the RECIST criteria (ii) the correlation between functional response (metabolic and MR parameters) and progression-free survival (iii) comparison between the predictive values of FDG-PET and MRI for one-year overall survival.

Detailed Description:

Study cohort will undergo PET/CT and MRI scans prior to chemotherapy and after the first chemotherapy cycle. MRI scans include DCE-MRI and DWI. The following parameters will be calculated using these values:

  1. Metabolic parameters on FDG-PET A. SUV change ratio (SCR) = SUVpost/SUVpre B. MTV change ratio (VCR) = MTVpost/pre C. TLG change ratio = SCR X VCR
  2. Perfusion parameters on DCE-MRI A. Kep B. K-trans C. ve
  3. Diffusion parameters on DWI A. Mean ADC B. fDM

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years and older
