    Judith van Loon
    Department of Radiation Oncology, Maastricht University Medical Centre, The Netherlands
    Radiother Oncol 99:172-5. 2011
    ..The purpose of the current study was to evaluate whether CT or FDG metabolic response early after the start of chemotherapy, but before the beginning of chest RT, is predictive for survival in SCLC...

    Judith van Loon
    Maastricht University Medical Centre, Department of Radiation Oncology, Maastro Clinic, GROW Research Institute, The Netherlands
    Cancer Treat Rev 37:331-43. 2011
    ..Tracers other than (18)FDG are promising for treatment response assessment and the visualization of intra-tumor heterogeneity, but more research is needed before they can be clinically implemented...
