Imaging Features of Common Non-nodal Neck Masses in Children

kt Wong, YYP Lee, AD King, AT Ahuja


Children frequently present with a neck mass and imaging plays an important role in their diagnosis and subsequent management. High-resolution ultrasound is the ideal initial imaging modality of choice as diagnosis can be made in most cases, and cross-sectional imaging such as magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography serve a supplementary role.
