This text is a comprehensive reference guide for normative measurements of anatomic structures in the head and neck, including lymph nodes, temporal bone, skull base, craniocervical junction, orbit, tonsillar tissues, thyroid, and salivary glands. The aim is to assist in the accurate interpretation of imaging studies of this region, where the size of different structures is of high importance for the differentiation of normal and abnormal anatomy, taking into account patient age and gender. The book includes illustrated examples of the proper measurement techniques. Furthermore, examples of pathology with abnormal measurements are included for comparison. The Manual of Normative Measurements in Head and Neck Imaging will serve as a valuable asset for radiologists and clinicians who are involved in the evaluation of patients with head and neck disorders.
• Assists in the accurate interpretation of imaging studies
• Presents illustrated examples of measurement techniques
• Explains the utility of quantatitve tumor imaging characteristics
