Prognostic value of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake before treatment for pharyngeal cancer.


OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate an association found between overall survival of patients with pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and pretreatment [(18)F]-2-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) uptake, which are assessed by positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography (PET/CT).
