Objective: To analyze the magnetic resonance (MR) effectiveness in detection of oral-oropharyngeal cancer local recurrences.
Design: Retrospective study.
Setting: University hospital.
Patients: Thirty-six patients followed up by MR (average, 38.2 months). The tumor stage was T1 (14%), T2 (30%), T3 (20%), T4a (28%), and T4b (8%).
Interventions: Surgery alone was performed in 61% of patients and multimodal treatment in 39%; 75% underwent reconstruction.
