AIM: The mylohyoid muscle is often believed to exhibit high physiologic fluoro-deoxy-glucose (FDG) uptake. Aim of this study was to use PET/MR for adequately assessing the normal FDG distribution in floor of the mouth (FOM) muscles and neighboring major salivary glands. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients scanned with a simultaneous PET/MRI system for initial staging or follow-up of head and neck tumors, with no malignant lesions in salivary glands or in FOM, were included. Volumes-of-interest (VOIs...

BACKGROUND: Knowledge of medial orbital wall (MOW) and anterior skull base (ASB) infiltration is of uttermost importance for staging and therapy planning of advanced sinonasal tumors. METHODS: We assessed the diagnostic performance of preoperative computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for MOW and ASB infiltration compared to intraoperative exploration. RESULTS: Both CT and MRI yielded higher diagnostic accuracy for MOW infiltration (Reader 1: 83.6% CT; 89.0% MRI, Reader 2...

We report three cases of unilateral F-FDG uptake in the orbicularis oculi muscle in subjects with contralateral peripheral facial nerve palsy. We argue that this asymmetric uptake pattern in fact reflects lack of metabolism on the side affected by facial nerve palsy, owing to denervation. Since the unilateral periorbital uptake resembles a monocle, we chose to call this finding the monocle sign. The monocle sign should not be confused with inflammation or tumor, but should prompt a neurological ...

To assess the diagnostic potential of multi-slice single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) for preoperative sentinel node (SN) mapping in early stage head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Retrospective case–control study including data of consecutive HNSCC patients treated between November 2011 and December 2015. The diagnostic accuracy of multi-slice SPECT/CT was assessed with regard to the gold standard intraoperative gamma ray detection probe, using M...

Objectives/Hypothesis To analyze the impact of different types of perineural invasion (PNI) in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity on overall survival and recurrence rate, with a special focus on histologic subtypes and tumor stage. Study Design Retrospective case-control study with clinicopathological analysis. Methods Seventeen patients who received primary surgical treatment for SCC of the oral cavity with PNI were matched to a control group. In a histologic review, PNI was class...
