Absolute CT perfusion parameter values after the neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy of the squamous cell esophageal carcinoma correlate with the histopathologic tumor regression grade.

Abstract

PURPOSE To analyze value of the computed tomography (CT) perfusion imaging in response evaluation of the esophageal carcinoma to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) using the histopathology as reference standard. METHODS Forty patients with the squamous cell esophageal carcinoma were re-evaluated after the nCRT by CT examination, which included low-dose… (More)
