A patient with pulmonary nodules 1 year after curative intent resection of primary lung adenocarcinoma

Question 1
Would you have ordered a surveillance PET-CT scan after completion of adjuvant chemotherapy?
A. Yes, because a high level of evidence demonstrates that surveillance PET-CT after curative intent surgery improves survival.

B. Yes, because surveillance PET-CT detects more tumor recurrence events than conventional imaging such as whole body CT, bone scintigraphy and brain MRI combined.

C. Yes, but this is debatable. This particular patient has a high risk for recurrence. If detected at an early stage, she may benefit from curative intent treatment.

D. Yes, because almost all recurrences occur within the first 6 months after curative surgery.
