Abstract

Imaging plays an important role in the diagnostic evaluation of laryngeal cancers. Cross-sectional imaging modalities are important in determination of imaging anatomy, patterns of tumor spread, management in pretreatment staging and post-treatment surveillance. Clinical examination, endoscopy, and imaging are complementary to each other. Endoscopy gives an accurate assessment of mucosal involvement. CT and MRI are excellent modalities to evaluate the submucosal spaces, cartilage and extra laryngeal soft tissues. Thus, the combination of information from clinical examination and imaging provides the most accurate staging of laryngeal malignancy. We introduce the different appearances and key points of laryngeal cancers in imaging.
