Cervical Nodal Metastasis in Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck - Novel MRI, FDG-PET, and Histopathologic Correlation
The purpose of this study is to determine the value of novel non-invasive medical imaging methods for detecting the spread of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma to the lymph nodes in the neck by comparing their results to findings at the time of surgery.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
