A 77-year-old man with level IIa node metastasis arising from cancer of the tongue (pT4N2b). a CT of PET/CT shows one swollen lymph node 20 mm in longest diameter at right level IIa (arrow), suggesting the presence of nodal cancer spread. b FDG-PET/CT shows intense FDG uptake (SUVmax:11.91) corresponding to the right level IIa node seen in a (arrow), suggesting the presence of nodal cancer spread. Examination of the histopathological specimen confirmed extensive lymph node involvement by cancer in this node. Both CT and FDG-PET/CT were true-positive
