Advances in characterization of molecular and genomic abnormalities specific to lung cancer have made precision therapy the current standard of care for lung cancer treatment. This article will provide a cutting-edge review of imaging of lung cancer in the current era of precision medicine. The focus of the article includes (a) an update on the recent advances in precision therapy for non-small cell lung cancer and their implications on imaging; (b) molecular and genomic biomarkers and pitfalls of image interpretations for lung cancer precision therapy; and (c) review of the current approaches and future directions of precision imaging for lung cancer, emphasizing emerging observations in longitudinal tumor kinetics, radiomics, and molecular and functional imaging. The article is designed to help radiologists to remain up to date in the rapidly evolving world of lung cancer therapy and serve as key members of multidisciplinary teams caring for these patients.
