AIM To evaluate the utility of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in differentiating post-treatment changes from tumour recurrence in head and neck cancers and to establish a threshold apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value to differentiate the two conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a prospective study of 80 treated head and neck cancer patients. The patient cohort consisted of a wide spectrum of head and neck sites, including the oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, hypopharynx… CONTINUE READING
