In recent years, oral cancer has become a huge solicitude in oncology with its accelerating incidence and has accounted for nearly 50% of cancers seen in India. Screening of patients and lack of awareness among people about the early signs and symptoms are the major factors for a late diagnosis. Although examination of the lesion clinically and diagnosis has a paramount role in early detection, different imaging techniques are required to accurately gauge the extent to local regions. Imaging plays a pivotal role in deciding the apt treatment strategy, assessing the resectability of the tumor, and gauging exact margins for resection. Thus, this study aims to describe a new clinical guideline using various available imaging systems and their importance in oral cancer management.
