The aim of this paper is to describe the modern imaging methods, their techniques, ability, and performance in staging head and neck lymph nodes. Also, the imaging morphologies of benign and malignant lymph nodes according to the different imaging techniques will be delineated. The imaging techniques of ultrasound including contrast-enhanced ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including diffusing weighted imaging and contrast-enhanced iron oxide MRI are… CONTINUE READING
