Clinical Trial Summary

In this study, patients diagnosed with a pathology-proven malignancy of the head and neck will receive a routine clinical activity of 18F-FDG ((18)F-luorodeoxyglucose) before undergoing standard of care surgical resection of the malignancy. Following the resection, the 18F-FDG-infused malignancy will be investigated utilizing a novel high-resolution Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT) scan. Slicing of the malignancy will be followed by additional PET/CT-scanning and autoradiography of the sliced specimen. The results found during image analysis will be compared to the results of the gold standard of histopathology. As this is no approved way of assessing the tumour's margin, the conclusion of the scan will not be used as a method for changing the patients' treatment.
