Assessment of serial multi-parametric functional MRI (diffusion-weighted imaging and R2*) with (18)F-FDG-PET in patients with head and neck cancer treated with radiation therapy.

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the serial changes and correlations between readout-segmented technique with navigated phase correction diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI), R2*-MRI and (18)F-FDG positron emission tomography (PET) CT performed before and during radiation therapy (RT) in patients with mucosal primary head and neck cancer. METHODS The mean apparent diffusion… CONTINUE READING
