OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The study aimed to investigate the prognostic effects of interim (18) fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) during definitive radiotherapy (RT) or chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with head and neck cancer. STUDY DESIGN This is a prospectively treatment study. METHODS The pretreatment and interim PET/CT images of 51 patients with advanced pharyngeal cancers receiving definitive RT/CRT were evaluated prospectively. The… CONTINUE READING
