Summary
  • To prospectively evaluate the use of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in the initial staging of squamous cell head and neck carcinoma.The status of cervical lymph nodes is an important prognostic factor and determinant of management approach in squamous cell head and neck cancer.FDG-PET findings were compared with those of computed tomography (CT) before removal of the primary tumor and/​or neck dissection. Histopathologic analysis was used as the gold standard for assessment of the sensitivity and specificity of these modalities.FDG-PET correctly identified the primary tumor in 35 of 40 patients in whom the site of the primary was known clinically and still present (sensitivity 88%). None of four unknown primaries were detected. Tumors not detected by FDG-PET were generally superficial, with depths of less than 4 mm. CT correctly identified 18 of the 35 primary tumors (sensitivity 51%). Eleven of 17 CT false-negative tumors were detected by FDG-PET. The sensitivity and specificity for the presence of metastatic neck disease on FDG-PET were 82% and 100%, respectively; those for CT were 81% and 81%, respectively. FDG-PET was true positive for metastatic neck disease in two of the three CT false-negative patients.FDG-PET shows promise in the initial staging of head and neck cancer and provides additional accuracy to a conventional staging process using CT.
