ANATOMY OF SALIVARY GLAND : 

ANATOMY OF SALIVARY GLAND

ANATOMY OF Wharton's Duct : 

ANATOMY OF Wharton's Duct The sub mandibular duct extends from the sub mandibular gland to the posterior edge of the mylohyoid bone curves around the muscle, then enters the sublingual space on the surface of the mylohyoid muscle and finally drains into the sublingual papilla. The sub mandibular duct is 5-6 mm and the clumen cross-section is 1-3 mm.

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)

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
