Abstract

In this study we developed a technique to improve the identification of carcinoma and pathological lymph nodes in cases of Nasopharingeal Carcinoma (NPC), through a quantitative characterization of the tissues based on MR images: 3D VIBE (Volumetric Interpolated Breath-hold Examination) T1-CE (Contrast Enhanced), T1, T2 and Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) for b-values 0,300,500,700,1000. The procedure included two phases: 1) coregistration of volumes and 2) tissue characterization.
