The evaluation of lymph nodes (LNs) using ultrasound requires a high level of clinical and sonographic competence. This “pictorial essay” is intended to illustrate eye-catching examples of relevant “clinical-sonographic visual diagnoses” of LNs. We provide typical images and take-home messages of eye-catching features to illustrate the featured publications.

The first part includes “important differential diagnoses of eye-catching features of suspected lymphadenopathy” and “benign lymphadenopathy”. The second part will include “Eye-catching features of malignant lymphadenopathy, both carcinoma and lymphoma”
