Ultrasound B-Scans for Clinical Evaluation of Neoplastic Neck Nodes

Arch Otolaryngol. 1975;101(8):509-511. doi:10.1001/archotol.1975.00780370051017

As an attempt to improve the quantitative and qualitative evaluation of neoplastic neck nodes, we are evaluating ultrasound B-scans. Clinical examples are presented to demonstrate how "B-scans" may be used to evaluate lymph node size and response to therapy.

Qualitatively, such scans may also be of value as a means of establishing lymph node boundaries and position with respect to other neck structures.
