Overview

On ultrasound, characteristic findings of mucoepidermoid carcinoma include: a well-circumscribed hypoechoic lesion with a partial or completely cystic appearance, in contrast to the relatively hyperechoeic normal parotid gland.

Ultrasound

  • Ultrasound findings associated with mucoepidermoid carcinoma include:[1]
  • It can determine location, homogeneity or heterogeneity, shape, vascularity, and margins of salivary tumors in the periauricular, buccal, and submandibular area.
  • Ultrasonography may be reveal the type of tumor, in addition to that, new ultrasonographic contrast mediums can demonstrate the vascularity of the tumor before surgery.[2][3]
  • Well-circumscribed hypoechoic lesion
  • Partial or completely cystic appearance
