Imaging of the Larynx

  • Hugh D. Curtin

Abstract

Imaging of the larynx must be coordinated with the clinical examination [1, 2]. The information acquired at imaging usually emphasizes the deeper tissues, as superficial assessment is done by direct visualization. A description of the anatomy is key to the description of any lesion.
