Ultrasonography represents the first-line examination due to its excellent visualization and characterization of neck structures, availability and lack of radiation. It is able to establish the parenchymal or cystic nature of a mass and its vascularity pattern.



In certain situation, mainly due to the large size of some lesions, magnetic resonance (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) are necessary in order to establish the origin of a mass or its extent. MRI is preferred due to its superior conspicuity and delineation of lesions and anatomical structures and also lack of radiation.
