Diagnosing Head and Neck Abnormalities

Diagnosing a pediatric head or neck abnormality involves a comprehensive evaluation. The diagnostic process often begins with a thorough physical examination to assess the appearance, function and development of the head and neck region. Advanced imaging techniques, such as X-rays, CT scans and MRI scans, may provide detailed insights into the underlying anatomy and structure. In some cases, genetic testing or laboratory studies may be necessary to identify any underlying syndromes or conditions contributing to the abnormality. 

Early detection, diagnosis and treatment are vital for the best patient outcomes.
