Imaging Features of Common Non-nodal Neck Masses in Children
兒童頸部常見非結節性包塊的影像特徵

kt Wong, YYP Lee, AD King, AT Ahuja


Abstract

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. This review aims to familiarise paediatricians and radiologists with imaging features of common non-nodal neck masses in children.

兒童常見頸部包塊,影像檢查對其診斷和其後的治療非常重要。就大多數病例而言,高解析度超聲即可診斷,是理想的首選影像檢查方法,而橫斷面影像檢查,如核磁共振和電腦斷層影像,則作為補充手段。本綜述旨在使兒科醫師和放射科醫師熟悉兒童頸部常見非結節性包塊的影像特徵。
