Head and neck ultrasound examination is increasingly used as point-of-care imaging among clinicians from different specialities to improve the diagnostic workup and perform ultrasound-guided interventions. Ultrasound can provide immediate information about morphology and anatomic relation of lumps and bumps of the neck and guide treatment of various lesions varying from patients with putative head and neck cancer to patients with acute neck abscess. This review describes the principles of a systematic head and neck ultrasound examination and the most common pathologies diagnoses with benefit by ultrasound.
