About this book


This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of the art in imaging of the head and neck. The book discusses the role of the standard modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography in diagnosing and staging head and neck cancers and in evaluating the effectiveness of various treatment regimens. In addition, the volume provides extensive insight into the role of emerging and exciting technologies such as positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and 3D volume rendering. These new modalities and techniques, in which the authors have extensive experience, promise to influence profoundly the practice of head and neck imaging and will improve the outcome of treatment of diseases of the head and neck in the future.
