The purpose of this chapter is to update some of the current approaches to the pretreatment assessment of patients with lung cancer. We will place emphasis on both standard staging and newer techniques. Because of their clinical relevancy, small-cell (SCLC) and non-small-cell (NSCLC) lung cancers have been divided to emphasize the special needs and approaches to each.
