CT can be considered the most reliable technique in detecting nodal metastases of the cervical district. The Authors have studied 170 patients with laryngeal cancer (104 N0, 21 N1, 21 N2 and 24 N3 clinically) with CT of the cervical region during infusion of contrast material. All patients underwent radical neck dissection with pathological examination of the nodes. CT diagnosis and pathological findings were correlated. Our findings show that CT has an overall accuracy of 91.8% (100% in groups N2 and N3) and fed false positives and false negatives.

Abstract

CT can be considered the most reliable technique in detecting nodal metastases of the cervical district. The Authors have studied 170 patients with laryngeal cancer (104 N0, 21 N1, 21 N2 and 24 N3 clinically) with CT of the cervical region during infusion of contrast material. All patients underwent radical neck dissection with pathological examination of the nodes. CT diagnosis and pathological findings were correlated. Our findings show that CT has an overall accuracy of 91.8% (100% in groups N2 and N3) and fed false positives and false negatives.
