MRI should: easily visualize a large tumor, but very small mucosal lesions may only be visualized endoscopically. So the answer is...sometimes.

Many things: Mri of the neck is performed without or with intravenous contrast and allows us to evaluate the muscles, soft tissues, bones, glands (parotid, submandibular), blood vessels, lymph nodes, airway, and any masses/cysts present.
