Figure 12 (A and B):(A) Axial T2 weighted fat-suppression image shows a right-sided tongue cancer (T1N1M0) extending more than 5 mm from the lateral margin of the tongue. (B) Coronal T2 weighted fat-suppression image shows bilateral submandibular lymphadenopathy (arrows), a result of the lymphatic drainage pathways of the inner two-thirds of the oral tongue. Radiological depth of invasion (DOI) measured 3.5 mm and histopathological DOI measured 3.2 mm. MRI and histopathology assessments of tumor spread were equivalent to within 0.5 mm DOI
