Event Overview
Welcome message:

This course is designed to provide a practical yet detailed insight into the modern diagnosis, treatment and management of head and neck cancer. Faculty will review the fundamentals of head and neck cancers; including anatomy, epidemiology and imaging characteristics. Pearls and pitfalls on how to best image various head and neck cancers will be presented. Multi-disciplinary Tumor Boards will take in-depth look at management decision making, treatment options and the emergence of HPV-related head and neck cancers.


Target Audience

This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate general radiologists and neuroradiologists who wish to enhance their knowledge of imaging and treatment of head and neck cancer. This activity should also benefit ENT physicians, head and neck surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, and general surgeons who are interested in head and neck cancer therapy and diagnosis. Technologists performing these types of imaging exams should also gain benefit from this symposium.

Educational Objectives

Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:

  • Recognize the etiologic and risk factors in the development of head and neck malignancies.
  • Describe the fundamental strategies for therapy of head and neck cancer, including the role of the radiologist in treatment planning.
  • Determine the optimal imaging techniques for imaging the head and neck utilizing CT, MRI, and PET/CT.
  • Recognize the surgeon's approach to cancers of the head and neck.
  • Illustrate the complexity of post-treatment imaging in head and neck cancer, including efficacy, and recognition of treatment-related complication.
  • Evaluate the role of modern radiation therapy for the treatment of head and neck cancer, including recent advances and prevention of treatment-associated toxicity.
