Core Tip In the pre-treatment phase, positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is valuable in the evaluation of patients with carcinoma of unknown primary origin, detection of synchronous second primary tumor, staging of cervical lymph node metastasis and assessment for distant metastases. In the post-treatment phase, PET/CT is helpful in evaluating treatment response, detecting residual or recurrent tumor and excluding distant metastases. Prognostic factors derived from PET/CT metabolic and functional data are useful in predicting tumor aggressiveness with implication on patient’s survivability, and facilitate selection of treatment modality and personalized treatment options.
