Target volume delineation in oropharyngeal cancer: Impact of PET, MRI, and physical examination Academic Article uri icon

Overview

MeSH Major

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Oropharyngeal Neoplasms
  • Physical Examination
  • Positron-Emission Tomography
  • Tumor Burden

abstract

  • PET and MRI are complementary and combined use is ideal. However, the low CI (ctpetmr vs. ref) particularly for primary tumors underscores the limitations of defining GTVs using imaging alone. PE is invaluable and must be incorporated.
