In this work, we evaluated the utility of pretreatment semi-quantitative dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in predicting early response to CRT (chemo-radiotherapy) in patients with larynx and hypopharynx carcinoma from primary tumors. To our knowledge, few studies correlate DCE-MRI semi-quantitative parameters on larynx and hypopharynx carcinoma. These quantitative methods do not require high computational power and were very suitable for clinical application.
