  • PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of MR sialography of the parotid gland ducts in the diagnosis and staging of Sjögren syndrome. [...] Key MethodMETHODS MR imaging was performed on a 1.5-T unit with a neck phased-array coil. MR sialographic source images were obtained using a heavily T2-weighted fast spin-echo sequence with spectral fat suppression. All images were analyzed on the basis of maximum intensity projection reconstruction.Expand Abstract
