      Abstract

      Suspected post-traumatic deformity of the laryngeal cartilages can be diagnosed by using current magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning techniques. This is of particular aid to the clinician who is evaluating a laryngeal mass with no history of injury to the neck. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging are both effective in this situation, but MRI appreciates better soft tissue contrast, and can offer coronal and sagittal views.
