This section passes through the oral cavity (2), genioglossus muscle (59), mandible (58), oral pharynx (57), fifth cervical vertebra (20, 34), fourth cervical intervertebral disk (12), cervical spinal cord (25, 26, 27), and the trapezius muscle (36).

The following important arterial vessels are identified: facial (53), lingual (52), internal carotid (45), and the vertebral (17, 44).

The anterior facial (50), external jugular (47), and internal jugular (16, 43) veins are seen.

Cranial nerves 5, trigeminal mandibular division branch (8); 11, spinal accessory (41) 10, vagus (15); and 12, hypoglossal (4) can be identified. In addition, the cervical sympathetic trunk (14) is located between the internal carotid artery and internal jugular vein (16).

The inferior alveolar (54), lingual (8), and greater auricular (40) nerves, third cervical nerve root (18), and the cervical enlargement of the spinal cord (25, 26, 27) are identified.

Parts of the submandibular gland are seen bilaterally (7, 9, 51).

Muscles of the head and neck include the genioglossus (59), styloglossus (56), platysma (10, 55), stylohyoid (49), middle pharyngeal constrictor (48), sternocleidomastoid (42), semispinalis capitis (33), semispinalis cervicis (31), multifidus (30), posterior scalene (21), middle scalene (19), longus colli (13), hyoglossus (6), mylohyoid (5), orbicularis oris (3), and transversus menti (1) muscles.

Shoulder muscles include the deltoid (23, 38), levator scapulae (37), and trapezius (36).
