In this presentation a systemic approach to infrahyoid neck imaging analysis is presented based on five individual spaces: the visceral, carotid, retropharyngeal, posterior cervical and perivertebral space. These spaces are defined by the three layers of the Deep Cervical Fascia (DCF). Each space has its own specific anatomical 'contents'. Therefore, once a disease process is assigned to one space, it is usually possible to formulate a short differential diagnosis based on the anatomy present in that space.
