- Interventions[18F]FDG PET at two seperate timepoints.
- Primary outcomeReproducibility of various SUV measures, metabolic and anatomic volume measurements on whole body [18F]FDG PET-CT. Test-retest variability will be calculated and expressed in terms of intraclass correlations and Bland-Altman analysis. Two-sided paired t-test and correlation analysis will be performed to asses the significance of any differences in the outcome measurements (SUV and volume).
- Secondary outcomeTo evaluate reproducibility of the variables as a function of the [18F]FDG time uptake interval.
- TimepointsTaken together we expect to complete the patient inclusion in 6 months; data analysis and writing will require approximately 3 months.

- Brief summaryRationale:
To detect changes in multiple [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography ([18F]FDG PET-CT) scans in one patient, test-retest variability needs to be determined, to know when an observed difference is due to a true biological effect.

The aim of the present study is to further measure the test-retest reproducibility of [18F]FDG PET-CT whole body scans in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. In this study the impact of using different tracer uptake periods and use of state of the art PET-CT technology of tracer uptake quantification and delineation using various new methodologies will be explored. Moreover, test-retest variability of 1D, 2D and volumetric tumor size measurements will be assessed.

Study design:
Monocentre, prospective observational study including 12 eligible patients with NSCLC who will be scanned with [18F]FDG on two separate occasions (within one week), without intervening therapy. Personal characteristics will be registered (age, sex, bodyweight, height).

Study population:
Patients with histological proven NSCLC, stage IIIB or IV.

The procedure consists of intravenous administration of [18F]FDG and PET-CT scanning. This procedure will be repeated within a maximum of 7 days (test-retest design).

Main study parameters/endpoints:
Reproducibility of standardized uptake value (SUV), metabolic and anatomic volume measurements on whole body [18F]FDG PET-CT.

Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness:
The total amount of radiation burden is 26 mSv.

Study time-course:
We expect to complete the patient inclusion in 6 months; data analysis and writing will require 3 months.

Statistical analysis:
Intraclass correlations and Bland-Altman analysis will be performed to evaluate reproducibility between the two scans.
