Qu X et al. – The results showed that both 18FDG–PET–CT and 18FDG–PET were better imaging methods for diagnosing bone metastasis from lung cancer than MRI and bone scintigraphy (BS). 18FDG–PET–CT has higher diagnostic value (sensitivity, specificity and DORs) for diagnosing bone metastasis from lung cancer than any other imaging methods.
