Predictive value of diffusion-weighted imaging without and with including contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging in image analysis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
OBJECTIVES To assess disease-free survival (DFS) in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) treated with (chemo)radiotherapy ([C]RT). METHODS Pretreatment MR-images of 78 patients wereExpand

Pre- and post-radiotherapy MRI results as a predictive model for response in laryngeal carcinoma
The purpose was to determine if pre-radiotherapy (RT) and/or post-radiotherapy magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can predict response in patients with laryngeal carcinoma treated with RT. Pre- andExpand

Radiologic extranodal spread and matted nodes: Important predictive factors for development of distant metastases in patients with high‐risk head and neck cancer
Different clinical high‐risk factors for the development of distant metastases have been identified but not tested in the same cohort of patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC).
