The normal magnetic resonance (MR) anatomy of the larynx at high field strength (1.5 T) was studied in 2 normal excised larynges and 62 subjects without laryngopharyngeal disease. The two normal excised larynges were imaged using a 1.5 T MR scanner with a 3 in diameter circular surface coil and a GE 9800 CT scanner. The larynges were sectioned transversely and the MR and CT images compared to gross and histologic sections. Unossified hyaline cartilage was intermediate in signal intensity on T1… Expand
Serial anatomy of the larynx in MRI: MRI-histologic correlations
The aim was to study the MRI radio-anatomy of the larynx based on correlations between MRI and histologic sections and was able to visualize the vocal process of the arytenoid cartilage, which has not to the authors' knowledge been previously described in the literature. Expand
MR evaluation of laryngohypopharyngeal cancer: value of gadopentetate dimeglumine enhancement.
Enhanced MR images were more useful in assessing the extent of tumors and the presence of laryngeal cartilage invasion than were proton-density-weighted and T2- Weighted images. Expand
Larynx and Hypopharynx
This work describes the use of high-frequency ultrasound (US) for examination of laryngeal anatomy and pathologies, however, the infrequency of such studies is probably due to unfamiliarity with the normal sonographic features of the larynx and hypopharynx. Expand

Calcifications within the cartilage were readily shown and were found in children at an earlier age than previously reported and side-to-side comparison of the number, size, and distribution pattern of the calcifications showed considerable variation. Expand
Normal age-related signal change in the laryngeal cartilages
The purpose was to examine the normal age-related signal patterns in the cricoid, thyroid and arytenoid cartilages on T1-weighted images to help in detection of cartilage invasion by tumor in older patients. Expand
A case of ossified laryngeal cartilage mimicking a subglottic mass.
Clinicians and radiologists should be aware that this heterotopic ossification of the laryngeal cartilage may mimic a polypoid mass-like presentation as well as the accompanying symptoms, and be aware of this rare case. Expand
Developing an anatomical model of the human laryngeal cartilages from magnetic resonance imaging.
This study provided an anatomical framework for registering different larynges to the same coordinate space and an algorithm for registering laryges that minimized the root-mean-square distance between the surface of a reference cricoid cartilage and the surfaces of nonisotropically scaled candidate cricoids was evaluated.

The ossification in the thyroid cartilage and the bone marrow formation increase and occur earlier moving downward from the cranial to the caudal aspects. Expand
Anatomical characterisation of the cricothyroid membrane in females of childbearing age using computed tomography.
The smallest dimensions of the membrane indicate that smaller than recommended cricothyroidotomy devices may be required in some patients as the external diameter of commercial trocar devices and tracheal tubes may exceed 7 mm. Expand
