ABSTRACT: The development of modern imaging techniques has significantly altered the treatment and management of these malignancies. Important treatment decisions that were once made intraoperatively are now made by using information from CT and MR imaging. The intent of this article is to provide the specific information that needs to be transmitted to the referring otolaryngologist or radiation oncologist and which will alter the treatment of patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the oral cavity and oropharynx.
