US Findings in Head and Neck Cancer
Ultrasound (US) is the initial imaging modality for evaluating superficial neck masses. In most cases, US aids in achieving an exact diagnosis or at least in determining the relation of the lesion to one or more neck organs, as well as its size, structure, margins, and vascularity. US is the preferred modality of guiding needle aspiration of all types of superficial lesions on the neck. Several technical improvements in the last years have contributed to improve image quality.
