Lung cancer is a disease affecting millions of people every year and poses a serious threat to global public health. Accurate lung cancer staging is crucial to choose an appropriate treatment protocol and to determine prognosis, this requires the acquisition of contrast-enhanced diagnostic CT (d-CT) that is usually followed by a PET/CT scan.
