Tumor metabolism and perfusion in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma: Pretreatment multimodality imaging with 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy, dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI, and [ 18F]FDG-PET
Carcinoma, Squamous Cell
Head and Neck Neoplasms
Pretreatment multimodality imaging using (1)H-MRS, DCE-MRI, and [(18)F]FDG PET is feasible in HNSCC patients with nodal metastases. Additionally, combined DCE-MRI and [(18)F]FDG PET parameters were predictive of short-term response to treatment.
