Imaging has a crucial role in the treatment of head and neck cancers as it discloses hidden foci of metastases, especially when it is located outside of the planned treatment field. Metastasis to oral cavity is a rare chance and may involve either soft tissue or jaw bones. Their early and accurate detection is critical and also a real challenge for the clinician. Therefore, pre-, per- and post-treatment imaging in diagnosis is critical. Radiography, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, followed by positron emission tomography, advancements in ultrasonography, and nuclear medicine along with sentinel node lymphoscintigraphy has greatly added to the diagnostic accuracy of metastases.
