      BACKGROUND: Muscle mass and density assessed from CT-images at the L3 level are prognostic for survival and predict toxicity in cancer patients. However, L3 is not always included on routine CT-scans. We aimed to investigate ...
    • Muscle mass and association to quality of life in non-small cell lung cancer patients
