Coregistered magnetic resonance imaging-positron emission tomography (MRI-PET) allows greater than 20% correct upstaging compared with conventional staging methods in patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer, but it does not appear to help identify significantly more correctly upstaged patients than positron emission tomography-computed tomography plus brain MRI. Coregistered MRI-PET may be helpful for guiding appropriate treatment and for predicting prognosis by reducing under staged lung cancer.
