Data Set for the Reporting of Ear and Temporal Bone Tumors: Explanations and Recommendations of the Guidelines From the International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting.

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

From the University of Sydney, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Camperdown, New South Wales, Australia (Dr Gupta); the Department of Head and Neck and Oral Pathology, Guy's Hospital, London, United Kingdom (Dr Sandison); the Department of Pathology, Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, Florida (Dr Wenig); and the Department of Pathology, Southern California Permanente Medical Group, Woodland Hills Medical Center, Woodland Hills (Dr Thompson).

The International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting (ICCR) was established to internationally unify and standardize the pathologic reporting of cancers based on collected evidence, as well as to allow systematic multi-institutional intercountry data collection to guide cancer care in the future. Such collaborative efforts are particularly essential for developing an evidence base for rare neoplasms, or those with marked geographic variation in incidence, such as the tumors of the ear and the temporal bone. The ear and the temporal bone, including the external auditory canal and the middle and inner ear, with the closely associated facial nerve, internal carotid artery, and internal jugular vein, is one of the most complex anatomic structures in the head and neck.

Clinical application of radiation dose reduction for head and neck CT.

Eur J Radiol 2018 Oct 24;107:209-215. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Department of Clinical Radiology, Kyushu University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Fukuoka, Japan.

CT has advantages over MRI including rapid acquisition, and high spatial resolution for detailed anatomical information on the head and neck region. Therefore, CT is the first choice of imaging modality for the larynx, hypopharynx, sinonasal region, and temporal bone. Introduction of multi-detector CT (MDCT) scanning has allowed reduction in scan time, availability of isovoxel image, and relevant 3D image reconstruction; however, it leads to over-ranging due to helical scanning, and increased radiation dose due to 3D-volume imaging, and small detector size.
