Imaging Follow-Up of Nonsurgical Therapies for Lung Cancer: AJR Expert Panel Narrative Review.

Lung cancer continues to be the most common cause of cancer-related death worldwide. In the past decade, with the implementation of lung cancer screening programs and advances in surgical and nonsurgical therapies, the survival of patients with lung cancer has increased, as has the number of imaging studies that these patients undergo. However, most patients with lung cancer do not undergo surgical re-section, because they have comorbid disease or lung cancer in an advanced stage at diagnosis. Nonsurgical therapies have continued to evolve with a growing range of systemic and targeted therapies, and there has been an associated evolution in the imaging findings encountered at follow-up examinations after such therapies (e.g., with respect to posttreatment changes, treatment complications, and recurrent tumor). This AJR Expert Panel Narrative Review describes the current status of nonsurgical therapies for lung cancer and their expected and unexpected imaging manifestations. The goal is to provide guidance to radiologists regarding imaging assessment after such therapies, focusing mainly on non-small cell lung cancer. Covered therapies include systemic therapy (conventional chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy), radiotherapy, and thermal ablation.
