How To Increase Performance Of Us Examinations In Head And Neck


MD, Radiologist, Amiralam Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran


At now the ultrasound exam is the main or first way to approach various diseases of the neck. Thyroid, lymph nodes, salivary glands and masses of the neck can readily evaluated by ultrasound.
Some discrepancies between methods to investigate above mentioned diseases are present that decrease efficacy of this valuable modality in the neck.
I decide to show standard approach in investigation of neck lesions by US for better relation between specialists concerning about neck abnormalities.
