Preoperative assessment of CD44-mediated depth of invasion as predictor of occult metastases in early oral squamous cell carcinoma
Grégoire B Morand, Kristian Ikenberg, Domenic G Vital, Isabel Cardona, Holger Moch, Sandro Stöckli & Gerhard Huber
CD44 expression correlates with DOI, which predicts occult lymph node metastasis. Preoperative CT and/or MRI provides an accurate estimation of histopathological DOI. Both pieces of information gained preoperatively can help surgeons tailor their operation in regard to the surgical management of the neck.
