Overview

Positron emission tomography (PET) scan may be helpful in the diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. It is useful in the detection of residual or recurrent tumor after treatment and distant metastasis, prediction of clinical cancer outcome and PET/CT scan is used for NPC staging.

Other Imaging Studies

PET scan may be helpful in the diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. PET scan is used for:[1][2][3][4]
