BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Imaging of bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaw is essential for surgical planning. We compared the extent of BONJ on contrast-enhanced MR imaging, [(18)F] fluoride PET/CT, and panoramic views derived from standard conebeam CT with clinical pre- and intraoperative examinations. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between February 2011(More)
OBJECTIVE Assess the influence of 2 different patient positions during [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake phase on physiologic FDG accumulation of the floor of mouth (FOM) muscles. STUDY DESIGN A prospective study design was used. METHODS Two hundred prospectively enrolled patients were included in the study: (a) head and neck cancer (HNC) patients in(More)
BACKGROUND [18F]FDG-PET/CT imaging is broadly used in head and neck cancer (HNSCC) patients. CT perfusion (CTP) is known to provide information about angiogenesis and blood-flow characteristics in tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential relationship of FDG-parameters and CTP-parameters in HNSCC preand post-therapy and the potential(More)
