To evaluate the feasibility of pet mri positron emission tomography magnetic resonance imaging with fdg 18 f fluorodeoxyglucose for initial staging of head and neck cancer the study group comprised 20 patients 16 men 4 women aged between 52 and 81 years median 64 years with . Purpose positron emission tomography pet mri combines the functional ability of pet and the high soft tissue contrast of mri the aim of this study was to assess contrast enhanced cepet mri compared to cepet ct in patients with suspected recurrence of head and neck cancer hnc. M rohde al nielsen j johansen et alhead to head comparison of chest x ray head and neck mri chest ct head and neck mri and 18f fdg pet ct for detection of distant metastases and synchronous cancer in oral pharyngeal and laryngeal cancer. Head and neck oncologic imaging is challenging owing to the complex anatomy the ongoing changes in imaging paradigms with pet ct pet mri ct and mri and the rapid evolution of therapy head and neck imaging in oncology distils this complexity with the aim of providing simplified information and guidance relevant to everyday clinical practice. This technique of fusion imaging offers the potential for improved detection and localization of head and neck cancer with one imaging tool pet ct has become an accepted and widely used imaging modality for the staging and follow up surveillance of head and neck cancer
