Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck—The role of diffusion and perfusion imaging in tumor recurrence and follow-up

Agnieszka Trojanowska


Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging-based techniques of functional
imaging are proven to be sensitive and reliable tools for detection and staging of head and
neck cancer.
These new techniques enable to visualize and differentiate subtle pathologic changes
before they become evident on standard cross-sectional images.
However, it is their role in evaluating possible recurrence and estimation of treatment
response that holds the biggest promise.
This article describes the role and usefulness of diffusion and perfusion in detecting
recurrence and follow-up in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
