Abstract

Arterial input selection has no significant effect on perfusion CT calculation of head and neck cancer. For standardization and simplification of postprocessing, we recommend the use of the ICA instead of the ECA as the arterial input because of its better visualization, perpendicular course, and larger caliber, all of which decrease partial volume effects.
