We performed a retrospective study comparing volumetric and unidimensional tumor size measurements in patients with advanced non–small-cell lung cancer. Cox regression analysis of the 77 patients analyzed demonstrated that only change in tumor volume and the initial tumor size predicted survival, indicating that volume is a better marker of survival compared with the diameter measurements that underlie Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST).
