P026 Magnetic Resonance in the Postoperative Assessment of Oral-Oropharyngeal Cancer: Is There a Role?

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):870-871. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.870-c

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%).
