Comparison between ultrasonography and MR imaging for discriminating squamous cell carcinoma nodes with extranodal spread in the neck.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic ability of ultrasonography (US) and MR imaging for discriminating squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) nodes with extranodal spread (ENS) in the neck. METHODS US and MR imaging was retrospectively evaluated for differentiating ENS-positive (n=28) from ENS-negative (n=26) SCC nodes (>10mm short-axis diameter) in 50 patients… (More)
