Background thirty six patients who were suspected for the non- thyroidal neck masses are taken for this study. Its evaluation and early diagnosis help patients for the further plan of treatment. Aim the aim of this study is to evaluate the role of various radiological imaging modalities in non-thyroidal neck masses for pre- operative characterization based on location, extent, morphological characteristics and enhancement pattern. Methods and material The study will be conducted on 36 patients with complaints of neck masses who are referred to the department of radio-diagnosis, tertiary care hospital during the period one and half year. . Results various neck masses of lymphnodal which involves tubercular, metastatic and lymphomatous and other non lymphnodal masses are evaluated with its characteristics in various radiological imaging modalities Conclusions USG is the primary modality of choice, and although CT is the workhorse for the imaging in neck region, MRI is a valuable problem solving tool when multimodality approach is needed in some non thyroidal neck masses. Being radiation free, it should be the modality of choice as specially in certain group like children.
