  It gives me immense pleasure to write this guest editorial for this upcoming April issue of Otorhinolaryngology journal.

  Being a radiologist and sonologist, ENT diseases have always come in my day to day practice either for CT, MRI imaging or for neck evaluation by ultrasound.

  Technological advances has completely revolutionized the field of imaging and helped our clinical colleagues in better evaluation of the diseases.CT and MRI with multiplanar imaging and axial, coronal and 3d reconstructions have given a complete understanding to the ENT surgeon prior to surgeries and also helped them to plan their surgeries in a better way.High Frequency ultrasound transducers in field of ultrasound completely changed the evaluation of neck pathologies in day to day practice.

  Being passionate about ultrasound, I personally have been able to evaluate salivary glands (parotid and submandibular) and thyroid glands in much better way using these high frequency transducers. Over last one decade, we developed pattern recognition of all pathologies of these glands and could give an accurate diagnosis to our clinicians.Infact in many cases, we could give histopathological diagnosis which was confirmed post-surgical excision.Ultrasound completely revolutionized the evaluation of lymph nodes in neck and helped the surgeon for diagnosing infective conditions like tuberculosis/abscess versus neoplasms and also in staging these neoplasms.

  Hence, I personally feel that in today’s era, the clinicians and the imaging specialist should work as team for our patients for better management and outcome.
