Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic fibrosing lung disease, with an incidence of ~1/10,000 per year, and a poor prognosis with limited treatments [1]. The role of hypoxia in disease progression is unclear. Footnotes This manuscript has recently been accepted for publication in the European Respiratory Journal . It is published here in its accepted form prior to copyediting and typesetting by our production team. After these production processes are complete and the authors have appr...

OBJECTIVE To explore differences in position emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) service provision internationally to further understand the impact variation may have upon cancer services. To identify areas of further exploration for researchers and policymakers to optimize PET-CT services and improve the quality of cancer services. DESIGN Comparative analysis using data based on pre-defined PET-CT service metrics from PET-CT stakeholders across seven countries. This was further inf...

Introduction To investigate the combined performance of quantitative CT (qCT) following a computer algorithm analysis (IMBIO) and 18F-FDG PET/CT to assess survival in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

Summary Background Whole-body MRI (WB-MRI) could be an alternative to multimodality staging of colorectal cancer, but its diagnostic accuracy, effect on staging times, number of tests needed, cost, and effect on treatment decisions are unknown. We aimed to prospectively compare the diagnostic accuracy and efficiency of WB-MRI-based staging pathways with standard pathways in colorectal cancer. Methods The Streamline C trial was a prospective, multicentre trial done in 16 hospitals in England. Eli...

Summary Background Whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI) could be an alternative to multi-modality staging of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but its diagnostic accuracy, effect on staging times, number of tests needed, cost, and effect on treatment decisions are unknown. We aimed to prospectively compare the diagnostic accuracy and efficiency of WB-MRI-based staging pathways with standard pathways in NSCLC. Methods The Streamline L trial was a prospective, multicentre trial done in...

Introduction IPF is a heterogeneous disease, and, due to the absence of predictive biomarkers, prognostic estimates rely on clinical scoring systems such as GAP (Gender, Age, Physiology). As GAP is relatively ‘static’, additional biomarkers are needed for more accurate prediction of disease progression and therapeutic response. Neutrophil: Lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been shown to be of prognostic value in cancer and inflammatory pathologies but has never been investigated in IPF. Methods The opt...

Background: Despite systematic investigation with computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, CT or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain imaging and supplementary investigation using endobronchial ultrasound guided biopsy (EBUS), endo-oesophageal ultrasound guided biopsy (EUS), fine needle aspiration (FNA), mediastinoscopy or mediastinotomy, there is an approximately 10% rate of occult N2 disease identified at pathological staging. It has been hypothesised that such occult...

Purpose There is a lack of prognostic biomarkers in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) patients. The objective of this study is to investigate the potential of 18F-FDG-PET/ CT to predict mortality in IPF.
