18F-FSPG PET/CT in Diagnosing Early Lung Cancer in Patients With Lung Nodules

This phase II trial studies how well 18F-FSPG positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) work in diagnosing early lung cancer in patients with lung nodules. PET imaging with an imaging agent called 18F-FDG is often used in combination with a PET/CT scanner to evaluate cancers.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
