Materials and Methods: Patients were clinically examined by bimanual palpation for cervico facial lymphadenopathy and their colour doppler ultrasound findings were recorded. Biopsy was done to confirm ultrasound findings.
Results: The internal architecture of the node, the pattern of colour doppler flow, vascular resistance were assessed in various inflammatory and malignant lymph nodes.
Conclusion: The utility of colour doppler ultrasound is really beneficial in establishing the regional lymph node enlargement as inflammatory and metastatic node.
