1. The overall survival rate for advanced head and neck (H&N) cancer patients undergoing PET-CT guided surveillance was similar to planned neck dissection in both HPV-positive and HPV-negative patient populations. 2. Surveillance resulted in fewer operations performed and was more cost-effective, with similar global quality-of-life scores compared to planned...
1. The combination of positron-emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MR) was shown to be equivalent to the combination of PET and computed tomography (PET/CT) for whole-body cancer staging and restaging. 2. PET/MR may be more sensitive for distant metastases than PET/CT while being more susceptible to imaging artifacts...
Image: PD 1. Whole-body diffusion-weighted MRI with ferumoxytol had comparable sensitivity and specificity to 18FDG-PET/CT scans in pediatric lymphoproliferative disorder and malignant sarcoma staging.  2. The use of IV ferumoxytol as contrast agent was not associated with significant adverse events.  Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)            Study Rundown: 18FDG-PET/CT...
