Abstract

  1. 1.

    MR is generally preferred in early and moderately advanced hypopharyngeal cancer.

     
  2. 2.

    CT delineates cartilage and vertebral body invasion better in advanced cases.

     
  3. 3.

    PET-CT is the best modality for assessing disease status following chemoradiation though it may also be utilized to rule out distant metastasis in advanced cases especially in those presenting with bulky nodal disease.
