Abstract

The possibility of detecting unknown internal carotid artery stenoses in patients undergoing biphasic multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for current or previous head and neck cancer was investigated in 52 patients who underwent four-row MDCT (4 mm×1.25 mm collimation, pitch 3, kVp 120, mAs 140; 90-100 ml of non-ionic contrast agent at 2 ml/s, early and late phases). Vessel stenoses were classed as severe (70-99%), moderate (30-69%), or mild (
