Ultra-small Super-paramagnetic Iron Oxide (USPIO) MR imaging in Benign
Mixed Tumor of the Parotid Gland
Ultra-small superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) compounds are used to
detect nodal metastases in various types of cancer. A benign mixed tumor
was evaluated with MRI including USPIO and prior to surgery. USPIO were
significantly concentrated in the lesion.
