Neck malignant tumors is the seventh most common cancer in the world and the ninth most common cause of cancer death. Meanwhile, challenges remain in the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant tumors in the neck. In this study, we explored the value of APTw imaging in the differential diagnosis between malignant and benign neck tumors. Results showed significantly higher APTw values in the malignant tumors than in benign tumors (AUC=0.882, P=0.006), suggesting APT a promising non-invasive method in the differentiation of the neck malignant and benign tumors.
