Normal magnetic resonance imaging anatomy of the tongue, oropharynx, hypopharynx, and larynx

Magnetic resonance imaging of the tongue, oropharynx, hypopharynx, and larynx of normal subjects was accomplished and normal anatomy was demonstrated. Images were acquired using surface coils and a multislice 2D-FT spin echo 500/28 pulse sequence on a 0.3 T permanent magnet (Fonar B-3000). Axia, coronal, and sagittal images were obtained and normal anatomic structures identified. MRI is an excellent technique for the demonstration of anatomy of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, larynx, and tongue.
