  • Treat HPV-related oropharynx cancers;
  • Determine surgical and non-surgical treatment options for oropharynx and larynx cancers;
  • Optimize reconstructive outcomes after oral cavity cancer surgery;
  • Surgically treat melanomas and other advanced cutaneous malignancies of the head and neck;
  • Recommend cost-effective, evidenced-based imaging surveillance strategies after head and neck cancer treatment;
  • Optimize the evaluation and treatment of benign and malignant thyroid diseases;
  • Improve management of the neck in thyroid cancer;
  • Determine the diagnosis and localization of parathyroid tumors;
