Suh, X Y.J. Choi, X J.H. Baek, and X J.H. Lee ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Accurate lymph node staging is crucial for proper treatment planning for metastasis in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. PURPOSE: Our aim was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of DWI for differentiating metastatic cervical lymph nodes from benign cervical lymph nodes in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and to identify optimal cutoff values for ADC. DATA SOURCES: A computerized literature search was performed to identify relevant original articles in Ovid MEDLINE and EMBASE. STUDY SELECTION: Studies evaluating the diagnostic performance of DWI for differentiating metastatic cervical lymph nodes from benign cervical lymph nodes were selected. DATA ANALYSIS: Diagnostic meta-analysis was conducted with a bivariate random-effects model, and a hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic curve was obtained. Meta-regression was also performed. DATA SYNTHESIS: Nine studies with 337 patients were included. In all studies, ADC values derived from metastatic lymph nodes were 3 2 significantly lower than ADC values derived from benign lymph http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Neuroradiology American Journal of Neuroradiology
