The sub mandibular duct is 5-6 mm and the clumen cross-section is 1-3 mm. POTENTIAL CLINICAL APPLICATIONS : POTENTIAL CLINICAL APPLICATIONS TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS : TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY : DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY Demerits in Digital Radiography : Demerits in Digital Radiography In the acute setting of sialadenitis - Possibility of exacerbating the symptoms associated with the infection The retrograde injection of contrast agents can force inflammatory products into the more peripheral parenchyma of the gland Act of instrumentation – irritation & may cause narrowing from post traumatic edema or stricture formation and lead to reduce drainage of the saliva For diagnosis of sialolithiasis approx. 20% sialoliths in the SMG and SMD are not radio opaque Phleboliths, Calcified hemangioma, calcified lymph stones may mimic sialoliths ULTRA SONOGRAPHY : ULTRA SONOGRAPHY Demerits in Ultra sonography : Demerits in Ultra sonography Sialoliths smaller than 2-3mm may be overlooked- (acoustic shadow) Be ready for surprises !!! : Be ready for surprises !!! MRI SIALOGRAPHY : MRI SIALOGRAPHY Parotid Ducts MR SIALOGRAPHY OF THE SUBMANDIBULAR DUCT : MR SIALOGRAPHY OF THE SUBMANDIBULAR DUCT DETECTION OF SIALOLITHS DETECTING SALIVARY GLANDULAR CALCULI & DUCTAL STENOSIS DELINEATION OF SUBMANDIBULAR DUCTAL SYSTEM SIALOLITHS : SIALOLITHS EQUIPMENTS : EQUIPMENTS High Tesla MR Scanner Dedicated Brain Coil -12 Channel array Slew rate – gradient amplitude of 25 mT/ at a ramp time of 600 nsec PREPERATION : PREPERATION Prior to MR image the patient were given Lemon juice to stimulate salivation. INDICATIONS : INDICATIONS CONTRA-INDICATIONS : CONTRA-INDICATIONS Patient with Acute Infection TECHNIQUES : TECHNIQUES 3D – CISS (Constructive Interference steady state) RARE (Rapid Acquisition and relaxation enhancement) - HASTE T2 weighted Turbo spin echo T1 weighted spin echo Soft Tissue MR Imaging CISS- An Overview : CISS- An Overview Strongly T2 weighted GRE sequences ((Two FISP) Two FISP sequences are summed , fluid such as saliva have high signal intensity Susceptible to patient motion High In-plane resolution Short Acquisition time High signal to noise ratio Characteristics of CISS : Characteristics of CISS Prone to Magnetic Susceptibility artifacts Excellent tissue/fluid contrast Not affected by the blurring artifact Slow sequences and slow reconstructions Slab profile is poor CISS is available in 2DFT & 3DFT implementations CISS-SEQUENCE PARAMETERS : CISS-SEQUENCE PARAMETERS TR – 12.25 mSec TE – 5.9 mSec Flip Angle – 70* I transverse slab 32 mm thick 46 partitions Matrix - 230x512 (60%) FOV – 200x150 Frequency over-sampling Phase L-R I Acquisitions Scan time – 4 min 20 sec Resolution – 0.7x0.65x0.39 Patient shim before sequence RARE – An Overview : RARE – An Overview HASTE – A modified sequence of RARE technique 128 echo train lengths – in a short time Characteristics of RARE : Characteristics of RARE HASTE images - not only RARE-Sequence Parameters : RARE-Sequence Parameters Plane – Oblique Sagittal TR - 2000 mSec TE - 10.7 mSec Flip Angle - 150* Matrix - 240X256 FOV – 230 mm In plane resolution - 0.79X0.74 mm ST- 4 mm BW - 240 Acquisition time - 7 sec Turbo T2 spin echo parameters : Turbo T2 spin echo parameters Plane -Transverse TR – 4500 mSec TE – 99 (Eff. echo time) Matrix – 256x256 FOV – 170 mm In-plane resolution - 0.70x0.66-mm ST – 3-mm with 0.45-mm Intersection gap NEX - 2 Acquisition time – 3 min 28 sec T1 Spin echo parameters : T1 Spin echo parameters Plane – Transverse TR – 580 mSec TE - 15 mSec Matrix – 256x256 FOV – 170 mm In-plane resolution – 0.66x0.66mm ST – 3-mm with 0.45-mm Intersection gap NEX – 2 Acquisition time – 5 min 58 sec PLANNING TIPS-MRI Sialography : PLANNING TIPS-MRI Sialography 3D CISS- Transaxial – Reformatted coronal and oblique sagittal using MPVR RARE – oblique sagittal orientation parallel to the sub mandibular duct Merits of MR Sialography : Merits of MR Sialography Not requiring Cannulation -Noninvasive No Contrast-Evoked Saliva is the Contrast No Radiation Possible to accurately assess the measurement of a duct Demerits of MR Sialography : Demerits of MR Sialography Visualization of small branches are poor Adjacent Dental amalgam – metallic artifacts Inability to show mild narrowing WHAT IS THE EVIDENCE IN SUPPORT OF THE CURRENT CLINICAL APPLICATIONS OF MR SIALOGRAPHY : WHAT IS THE EVIDENCE IN SUPPORT OF THE CURRENT CLINICAL APPLICATIONS OF MR SIALOGRAPHY CASE PRESENTATIONS : CASE PRESENTATIONS CONCLUSION : CONCLUSION Sensitivity and Specificity : Sensitivity and Specificity Detection of Calculi in MR Sialography : Detection of Calculi in MR Sialography Detection of Ductal Stenosis in MR Sialography : Detection of Ductal Stenosis in MR Sialography Similar of Digital Sialography and superior than US : Similar of Digital Sialography and superior than US THANK YOU : THANK YOU You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
