Learning objectives: To review the normal anatomy and ultrasound technique for the evaluation of the cervical region To evaluate the usefulness of ultrasound as a diagnostic method for evaluating the pathology of the neck To describe the sonographic appearance of nodular images that locate in the region under study, w[...]

Background: Neck masses are a frequent occurrence and a common head and neck problem in patients presenting to the primary care clinician. The cervical region is made up of different tissues which can originate cervical masses, including muscle, tendon, cartilage, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, nerve and lympha[...]

Findings and procedure details: We reviewed ultrasounds performed in patients with cervical masses at German Hospital in the last 5 years. In all cases patients were evaluated with high resolution ultrasound (US), high-sensitivity color-flow imaging and power Doppler. We selected a sample of representative cases of benign and mali[...]

Conclusion: Ultrasonography is useful for initial assessment of cervical nodes. It is a noninvasive test without ionizing radiation, easy availability and relatively low cost. It allows to specify position, size, nature of a tumor and can be used as a guide biopsy. The ultrasonic characteristics of the lesions,[...]
