About this book

Introduction

This book comprehensively covers state-of-the-art cross-sectional imaging of the larynx. The radiological anatomy of the larynx is described in detail, and the imaging findings in benign and malignant laryngeal disease are extensively discussed. Post-treatment changes are carefully described. The benefit of imaging in the clinical management of laryngeal pathology is highlighted, including its role in patient surveillance after treatment of laryngeal cancer. Furthermore, cutting-edge technical developments, including virtual endoscopy based on multislice CT, dynamic MRI, and functional imaging of laryngeal tumors, are reviewed. This book will enable the reader to achieve a higher level of sophistication in the performance and interpretation of laryngeal imaging studies.
