Superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) nanoparticles are unique MR contrast agents and are of great interest for their multiple potentials. SPIO nanoparticles have a higher diagnostic accuracy for detecting metastatic lymph nodes than conventional MR studies, particularly in head and neck. The impact of this unique MR contrast agent on treatment decision of patients with head and neck cancer needs to be investigated in comparison with contrast-enhanced CT. As MR technology advances, the accuracy… CONTINUE READING
