Valvassori, Mahmood F. Mafee, Barbara L. This book is an updated version of Head and Neck Imaging which was published six years ago and reflects new developments in imaging techniques. With the rapidly changing technology in radiographic imaging, it may be difficult to choose the best study for the assessmentof specific conditions.

In instances where nodes are suspicious but not clearly involved, ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration or FDG-PET may be used to clarify regional staging. Follow-up Imaging of patients who have undergone treatment is often challenging, as the combination of often extensive excisional and reconstructive surgery with superimposed radiotherapy distorts normal anatomy and alters tissue characteristics.

Additionally, a wide array of potential complications exist, including: breakdown of surgical repair, e. Treatment and prognosis Treatment is site and category-specific, but in general treatment options include combinations of surgical and oncological treatments. Definitive surgical management generally involves surgical excision of the primary tumor with or without unilateral or bilateral neck dissection, which may be followed by radiotherapy or chemo-radiotherapy depending on extent of disease and surgical outcome.

Non-surgical oncological treatments include radiotherapy usually combined with chemotherapy. Immunotherapy options may increasingly play a role in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma treatment and this is an active area of research 7.

Because of differing natural histories, HPV-positive and HPV-negative oropharyngeal cancers are staged and treated differently.

However, they are associated with a better response to conventional chemo-radiotherapy treatments and improved prognosis 5,7. Prognosis depends not only on staging but also on location even corrected for stage. References 1. Doherty GM. Read it at Google Books - Find it at Amazon 2.
