From: Texture analysis of pretreatment [18F]FDG PET/CT for the prognostic prediction of locally advanced salivary gland carcinoma treated with interstitial brachytherapy

Fig. 1

The procedure of brachytherapy based on PET/CT figure: Pretreatment PET/CT showed a T4 parotid gland carcinoma (a). Quality verification using postoperative CT images in the brachytherapy treatment planning system showed that the D90 curve covered the tumor area (b). PET/CT showed that the area of focal FDG uptake regressed 6 months after brachytherapy (c). Dose-volume histograms of the target area and organs at risk are shown (d). ICA internal carotid artery, SC spinal cord, EAC external auditory canal
