AbstractPurpose: Ultrasound is a well-established imaging modality in the assessment of malignant cervical lymphadenopathy. With the use of Doppler ultrasound, intranodal vascularity can be evaluated. However, the major limitation of ultrasound is operator dependency. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate and compare the diagnostic accuracy and reliability of the subjective grading and computer-aided approach in assessing intranodal vascularity for the differentiation of benign and malignant lymph nodes.
