Evaluation of the role of 18FDG-PET/CT in radiotherapy target definition in patients with head and neck cancer.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: As techniques for radiotherapy delivery have developed, increasingly accurate localisation of disease is demanded. Functional imaging, particularly PET and its fusion with anatomical modalities, such as PET/CT, promises to improve detection and characterisation of disease.
