Echo-planar diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was used to evaluate changes in the parotid glands during gustatory stimulation. The study protocol was approved by the local ethics committee, and informed consent was obtained from all volunteers. Twelve healthy volunteers (five women, seven men) with a median age of 25 years (range, 22-30 years) were examined with a 1.5-T MR unit. A DW MR imaging sequence was performed once at rest and continuously repeated over a mean… CONTINUE READING
