Abstract

Imaging plays an important role in the diagnostic evaluation of laryngeal cancers. This article discusses important technical issues related to cross-sectional imaging modalities, imaging anatomy, patterns of tumor spread and the contribution of imaging in pretreatment staging and post-treatment surveillance.
