Abstract

Aims: Our aim was to evaluate the diagnostic role of Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose Positron emission tomography-computed tomography (F-18 FDG PET-CT) using three different criteria published in the literature and to compare the diagnostic value of these three parameters in patients with oral cavity cancers (OCC).
