|Predictive Value of Perfusion CT in Evaluating Metastatic Lymphadenopathy.|
Finally we conclude, CTP provides additional functional information regarding characterization of lymph nodes.
It might be useful in differentiation between malignant and non-malignant lymph nodes; however, this study requires further validation.
Therefore perfusion CT tool may be helpful in oncology, providing a higher degree of diagnosis security, differentiation in malignancy and for the therapeutical follow-up
One of the important applications of this technique is the indication of a highly perfused node, which could be used to guide biopsy and thus reducing the chance of sampling error.
