CONCLUSION Feasibility of intraoperative 3D imaging with freehand (fh) SPECT for sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in head and neck cancer (HNC) could be demonstrated. Controlled clinical studies are needed to evaluate its accuracy and impact on patient morbidity. OBJECTIVES The clinical N0 neck in HNC needs improvement in management to sufficiently detect occult neck disease but to spare patients from potential morbidity by elective neck dissection. The SLN concept has potential to accurately… CONTINUE READING
