We studied the possible correlation between 2-18F-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) uptake and histopathological findings in mass lesions of the parotid gland. Thirteen pleomorphic adenomas of the parotid gland were evaluated by computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Gallium scintigraphy, Technetium scintigraphy and FDG-positron emission… CONTINUE READING
