Detection of distant metastases and second primary tumors in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is of importance because of the impact on treatment and prognosis. The aim of this study was to assess the value of whole-body fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in detecting distant metastases and second primary tumors below clavicular level in HNSCC compared to chest CT and chest radiography (CXR). Patient records of 149 consecutive patients with a… CONTINUE READING
