OBJECTIVE Assessment of the value of magnetic resonance tomography in the determination of extracapsular neoplastic spread and soft tissue infiltration of cervical lymph nodes. MATERIALS AND METHODS The results of magnetic resonance tomographies of 110 patients with squamous cell carcinoma in the head-neck region were prospectively compared with the findings of the histologic examination after neck dissection. RESULTS Magnetic resonance tomography reaches a specificity of 72.2 % in the… CONTINUE READING
