The aim of this chapter is to introduce other neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the head and neck region beyond medullary thyroid carcinoma and paragangliomas. NETs of the head and neck are rare neoplasms and can be of epithelial or non-epithelial differentiation. Anatomical and functional imaging can be complementary for the diagnosis, staging, and monitoring of treatment response of these tumors. This chapter briefly describes the imaging methods used to evaluate these tumors and illustrates the imaging features of some NETs of the head and neck region.
