Abstract LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 2a BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate the role of (18) F-FDG PET/CT in tumor staging, extent, and volume measurements in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) patients with/without dental artifacts on CT or MRI. METHODS: This study was conducted in 63 consecutive patients with OSCC who received initial workups including (18) F-FDG PET/CT and MRI. The results of the imaging modalities were compared to those of pathology, using McNemar's test and the paired t-test. RESULTS: Thirty-seven patients (59\%) had dental or metallic artifacts obscuring primary tumors. (18) F-FDG PET/CT scanning was superior to MRI in tumor staging (weighted κ = 0.870 vs. 0.518, P = 0.004) in patients with dental artifacts. In addition, (18) F-FDG PET/CT scans were more specific than MRI in detecting sublingual gland (P = 0.014) and mouth floor (P = 0.011) involvement. In patients with dental artifacts, there was a significant discrepancy between primary tumor volume (PTV) measured by pathology and MRI (P = 0.018), but not between PTV measured from pathology and (18) F-FDG PET/CT at SUV2.5 (P = 0.245), which showed the highest intraclass correlation coefficient value (0.860). CONCLUSION: (18) F-FDG PET/CT scans provide accurate tumor staging and volume measurements in OSCC patients with CR/MRI dental artifacts, leading to improved preoperative planning. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 2b CONDENSED ABSTRACT This study evaluated the clinical value of (18) F-FDG PET/CT in 63 patients with oral cavity cancers. In 37 (59\%) patients with dental artifacts on CT/MRI, (18) F-FDG PET/CT showed superior results compared to MRI in tumor staging and represented the highest intraclass correlation coefficient value to tumor volume determined by pathology. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
