Abstract

Depth of invasion (DOI) has been introduced into the latest TNM classification of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Despite its primarily pathological definition (pDOI), a preoperative evaluation of a radiological DOI (rDOI) would be useful but a standard and practical definition is lacking. The primary aim of this study is to measure the rDOI by computed tomography (CT) and compare it to the pDOI in a cohort of OSCC patients. Then, we analyze the utility and reliability of rDOI in the preoperative setting.
