The authors examined the SEER database to assess racial disparities in use of PET for lung cancer staging 2007-2015 and subsequent one-year survival. Blacks  (OR 0.54) and Hispanics (OR 0.72) were less likely to undergo PET compared to non-Hispanic whites. Use of PET was associated with improved survival (HR 0.61).
