18F-FDG-PET/CT for the assessment of the contralateral neck in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC)
Objectives/Hypothesis: The aim was to compare the value of 18-Fluoro-Deoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) regarding contralateral lymph node (LN) metastasis in the neck. Study Design: Retrospective analysis of 61 patients staged by 18F-FDG-PET/CT. Methods: Cytology/histology served as a reference standard.
