However, small parenchymal lesions (Ͻ7–10 mm) may be falsely negative with PET scanning. Sazon et al. have reported that PET is 100% sensitive and 52% specific in predicting the malignant nature of radiographic abnormality (36). Others have reported less impressive findings but a 90% or greater sensitivity for PET in detecting primary lung cancer is well accepted. Positron emission tomography has also been found to be superior to CT in both sensitivity and specificity in the staging of mediastinal lymph nodes (37–39).

The timing of thoracic irradiation is unimportant and the discordant results are due to the play of chance. Delivery of chemotherapy or thoracic irradiation was inadequate in the negative trials. The patient populations differ. The influence of chance cannot be discounted, but other explanations may be more plausible. The CALGB study (28,29) and the Aarhus trial (31) were associated with issues related to the adequate delivery of chemotherapy or tho- Early Timing of Radiotherapy: Pro 29 racic radiotherapy, respectively.

Each has great potential to help guide management. However, like any new technology, more experience will be required before we can understand their true role in standard staging approaches to patients with lung cancer. REFERENCES 1. Denoix PF.
