Patient
female, 47 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth: CT findings
     

    Imaging discloses a midly enhancing lesion which abuts the cortex of the mandible.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth: CT findings;

    Same level as fig 1a, bone window setting. There is no evidence of lysis of the cortical bone of the horizontal branch of the mandible

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth: CT findings;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth: MRfindings
     

    T1 Weighting, Same level as Image 1. The tumor (arrow) is displayed as a low signal intensity area. The medullary bone is normal

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth: MRfindings;

    T2 Weighting, Same level as Image 1. The lesion invades the genioglossus muscle

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth: MRfindings;

    T1 weighting, Gadolium injection, fat suppression. The lesion midly enhances with contrast
