PURPOSE To investigate the feasibility of blood flow imaging in the parotid gland using the arterial spin labeling (ASL) technique for assessment of functional changes in the parotid gland after gustatory stimulation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Anatomical and ASL imaging of the parotid gland was performed in eight healthy volunteers before and after gustatory stimulation over a period of 17 min. All measurements were carried out in a 1.5 T whole-body MR unit. ASL and data recording were performed… CONTINUE READING
