This study presents a voxel-based comparison between FDG-PET
and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE-) MRI for twenty-one
patients with head-and-neck cancer. At voxel-level the
correlations within the gross tumor volume were higher
between SUV and Ktrans and kep compared to the
correlations at patient-level. Therefore, it is
important to take tumor heterogeneity into account.
