Primary Objectives - Determine the biodistribution of [18F]-C-SNAT4 in 5 healthy volunteers. Secondary Objectives - Determine the dosimetry of [18F]-C-SNAT4 PET in healthy volunteers and patients with lung cancer. - Determine the acute toxicity of [18F]-C-SNAT4 PET in healthy volunteers and patients with lung cancer. - Determine whether uptake in [18F]-C-SNAT4 PET imaging is significantly different in tumor and corresponding contralateral noncancer tissue in patients with lung cancer (tested by Wilcoxon test) before the therapy. - Determine/verify the safety profile of the [18F]-C-SNAT4 radiotracer, as an imaging agent in patients with lung cancer. - Determine the time of maximal [18F]-C-SNAT4 radiotracer uptake post injection.

Exclusion Criteria:
  1. - Has already begun non-surgical therapy for any recurrence, prior to the first [18F]-C-SNAT4 PET/CT scan - Severe/uncontrolled inter-current illness within the previous 28 days prior to PET scan. - Any other significant co-morbid conditions that in the opinion of the Investigator would impair study participation or cooperation. - History of allergic reactions to IV contrasts or reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biological composition to [18F]-C-SNAT4 used in study. - Pregnant or nursing - Patients who exceed the safe weight limit of the PET/CT bed (204.5 kg) or who cannot fit through the PET/CT bore (diameter 70 cm).
