Level II - General radiologist

2 EACCME CME Credits

This Image Reporting Module on head and neck cancer is aimed at radiologists who are interested in boosting their clinical competences in the interpretation and identification of different head and neck cancer patterns via images in MRI and CT scan cases.

25.00 €


The anatomy of the neck is complex, with many critical structures in a relatively small cross-sectional area. Many structures in the neck also have similar soft tissue density or signal that further complicates interpretation for the radiologist.
It is important to recognize the anatomy and landmarks of cervical compartments as well as the patterns of spread when evaluating head and neck tumours.
This imaging-based classification it is a reproducible and consistent classification system endorsed by clinicians and radiologists specialized in head and neck cancer to assess lymph nodes involvement.

Learning objectives

  • Recognize the anatomy of the nasopharynx, oropharynx, hypopharynx and supraglottis
  • List the areas of extension of head and neck tumours
  • List the boundaries of the head and neck nodal levels
  • List the expected patterns of nodal spread in head and neck cancers
  • Correctly classify and stage the tumours following the TNM classification
