Diagnostic sensitivity of 18fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography for detecting synchronous multiple primary cancers in head and neck cancer patients

Abstract

We assessed the sensitivity of positron emission tomography (PET) for detecting synchronous multiple primary cancers, particularly synchronous esophageal cancers in head and neck cancer patients. We retrospectively reviewed 230 head and neck cancer patients. All the patients routinely underwent the following examinations: urinalysis, occult blood, tumor… (More)
