BACKGROUND The detection of subclinical head and neck cancer recurrence or a second primary tumor may improve survival. In the current study, the authors investigated the clinical value of a follow-up program incorporating serial (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography integrated with computed tomography (PET/CT) in the detection of recurrent(More)
OBJECTIVE To update the guidelines for neck dissection terminology, as previously recommended by the American Head and Neck Society. PARTICIPANTS Committee for Neck Dissection Classification, American Head and Neck Society; representation from the Committee for Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology, American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery(More)
Most tumors in the parotid gland are either benign neoplasms or low-grade malignancies. The magnetic resonance (MR) images of 29 patients with such tumors were reviewed. These masses typically have low T1-weighted and high T2-weighted signal intensities and have clearly defined margins. The signal characteristics presumably reflect the serous and mucinous(More)
Those of us who have been privileged to practice in the field of radiology during last 20 years marvel at the advances made in the cross-sectional techniques. The digital revolution has propelled our specialty into one of the most dynamic times for medicine, rivaling that of the introduction of antibiotics and the discovery of the X-ray. As we take account(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare the efficacy of surveillance high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and physical examination/endoscopy (PE/E) with the efficacy of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET)/HRCT for the detection of relapse in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) after primary treatment.

Based on a review of the literature and analysis of six new cases, three categories of enlarged, aerated sinuses are defined, namely: hypersinus, pneumosinus dilatans, and pneumocele. The information gained by our study of the area variation of the frontal sinuses in a normal population (part I of this paper) was utilized to define the term hypersinus. In(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this phase 2 study was to evaluate the tolerability and efficacy of incorporating cetuximab and simultaneous integrated-boost (SIB), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) into a well described 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and hydroxyurea (HU)-based chemoradiation regimen. METHOD Patients with stage IVA and IVB or high-risk(More)
Surgical and CT examinations of 104 patients, each of whom presented with a parapharyngeal space mass, has resulted in the development of an updated CT protocol designed to provide a preoperative diagnosis. When dynamic scanning is used, diagnostic angiography or digital venous imaging (DVI) can be avoided in almost all of these cases. A specific(More)
We report on the appearance of parathyroid, thyroid, and cervical thymic cysts on computed tomography (CT) scans. The differential diagnostic considerations include thyroglossal and branchial cleft cysts, cystic hygromas, primary and metastatic tumors, dermoids, teratomas, choristomas, tracheoesophageal and cervical bronchogenic cysts, as well as cystic(More)
