sments, randomized trials and meta-analyses and also took into consideration studies evaluating the utility of PET.

Future research is needed to determine not only if PET should be integrated into the standard staging and diagnostic processes of lung cancer but also how PET would be incorporated into the staging algorithm, says Ung.

In 2007, an estimated 23,300 Canadians will be diagnosed with lung cancer and 19,900 will die of it. The total number of lung cancer deaths (men and women combined) is greater than the number of either prostate or breast cancer related deaths combined. According to Lung Cancer Canada, in 2006, almost 23,000 Canadians were diagnosed with the disease and another 27,000 cases are expected to be diagnosed this year.
