BACKGROUND We investigated the utility of clinical FDG-PET in patients with nasopharyngeal tumor treated by radiotherapy, retrospectively. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen patients with known or suspected nasopharyngeal tumors underwent FDG-PET. PET images were evaluated with visual interpretation qualitatively. Semiquantitative analysis was also performed on the metabolic ratios (MRs). RESULTS The sensitivity and specificity of FDG-PET based on visual inspection were 92.9% (13/14) and 83.3… CONTINUE READING
