The authors in this article, made from a review of the scientific literature (PubMed search engine), indicate the current position of positron emission tomography with 18F-fluro-2-deoxy-D-glucose coupled computed tomography (PET-CT) in the early and late post-treatment follow up of squamous cell carcinomas of the upper aerodigestive tract. The aim of this follow up is twofold: Early detection of locoregional progressive evolution or metastatic progression and search for a possible second metachronous cancer in patients at risk.
