Imaging studies provide crucial information on disease extent in
head and neck malignancies. A thorough knowledge of the
loco-regional anatomy of this complex area and a proper
understanding of the natural disease spread pattern are
prerequisites in the interpretation of these imaging studies. Tumor
extent influences tumor staging, predicts outcome and influences
treatment choices. Knowledge of the different treatment options and
expected post-therapeutic tissue changes are also critical in order
to use imaging adequately in the surveillance of these patients.
After an introductory chapter on epidemiology and clinical signs,
this book reviews the pertinent imaging findings for each of the
major anatomical subsites. Emphasis is on CT and MRI, but PET and
ultrasound are also discussed where appropriate. Reviews on modern
surgical and radiotherapeutic techniques are included, helping the
reader to understand post-treatment tissue changes and how to
differentiate these from tumor recurrence or treatment
