Patient
female, 25 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Sjogren's syndrome
     

    A coronal T1-weighted image showing a bilateral parotid gland enlargement with heterogeneity and granular appearance.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sjogren's syndrome;

    A coronal T2-weighted image showing diffuse small high intensity nodules in both parotid glands. These nodules appeared to be hypointense on T1-weighted images.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sjogren's syndrome;

    An axial T2-weighted image with the same appearance. These small high signal foci correspond to multiple dilated peripheral ducts.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sjogren's syndrome;

    A post-gadolinium injection with a fat suppression image revealed no enhancing mass lesion.
