Abstract

Objectives: Properties of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) such as cellularity, vascularity, and glucose metabolism interact with each other. This study aimed to investigate the associations between diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI), and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in patients with HNSCC.
