Figure 16 (A and B):(A) Coronal T2 weighted fat-suppression image shows a carcinoma in the middle third of the oral tongue (T3N1M0) with early infiltration (long arrow) of the tongue musculature (genioglossus). Note the ipsilateral submandibular lymphadenopathy (short arrow). (B) Coronal post-contrast T1 weighted fat-suppression image of a more advanced case shows the tumor invading the lateral floor of the mouth (T4aN1M0-arrow). Radiological DOI measured 9.2 mm and histopathological DOI measured 8.8 mm. MRI and histopathology assessments of tumor spread were equivalent to within 0.5 mm DOI
