Abstract

In clinical evaluation in the head and neck should start with clinical investigations, such as inspection and palpation. Imaging modalities include conventional X-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance tomography, computed tomography and digital substraction angiography as diagnostic and interventional methods. Pathological lesions that may need radiological methods for the evaluation of the exact diagnosis, are subdivided into congenital deformities, tumorous lesions, inflammatory disease, vascular disorders and traumatic lesions. This article is proposed to discuss the value of computed tomography in the evaluation of lesions in the head and neck.
