Figure 1: (a) The areas seen on anterior lateral and posterior imaging from the thoracic esophagus. (b) The areas seen on anterior lateral and posterior imaging are seen from the cervical esophagus. (c) The areas seen on anterior lateral and posterior imaging from hypopharynx. The structures of hypopharynx are enclosed within three layers of cervical fascia, i.e., a superficial, a pretracheal, and a prevertebral fascia. The superficial layer surrounds all the important structures in the neck; the prevertebral layer surrounds the vertebral column and the muscles; and the pretracheal layer forms a visceral compartment, which include thyroid, pharynx, esophagus, and trachea
