abstract

  • Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC) is the seventh most common cancer in the United States. Angiogenesis, the process by which new blood vessels are formed, is an essential element at the basis of both tumor growth and metastases. This review discusses pertinent aspects of the role of imaging modalities in assessing angiogenesis and anti-angiogenic therapy in advanced HNSCC.
