Neck imaging is often considered to be a challenging area for Radiologists. The anatomy is complex, some pathologies are site specific and access to specialist training may be limited. This presentation will start by looking at anatomical neck spaces and then concentrate on pathologies trainees might encounter on-call, excluding facial trauma which has been covered in another presentation. A case- base approach will be used to encourage audience participation.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand the principles of compartmental neck space anatomy
  2. Understand when it is appropriate to image the neck on-call and how to protocol a CT neck
  3. Recognise commonly encountered pathologies on call
