Abstract

A technique of simultaneous computed tomography and sialography of the parotid and submandibular glands is described and the examination of 14 patients reported. Tumours were diagnosed in six cases and in the remaining eight cases inflammatory lesions were found. Sialographic enhancement offered definite advantages in localisation of lesions and examination of the tumour-normal tissue interface compared with either C.T. or sialography alone.
