The radiologist serves a critical role in the initial assessment and future follow-up of NSCLC. Accurate diagnosis and staging of the primary tumor requires an understanding of the different treatment options available, particularly where therapy involves a multidisciplinary approach involving surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists. New developments in imaging and in treatment require greater collaboration between the different medical disciplines and are changing the understanding of tumor biology.
