• Histologically
  • Histologically, salivary gland tumors represent the most heterogenous group of tumors of any tissue in the body. (cigna.com)
  • 3 , 4 , 6 - 9 These neoplasms are histologically composed of monotonous sheets of oncocytes, epithelial cells named by Hamperl in 1931, which are characterized by an intensely eosinophilic and granular cytoplasm. (ajnr.org)
  • duct
  • The symptoms are unmistakable, with all the features of infection (swollen, red tender gland), and pus may be milked from the duct orifice. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
  • Liver lobules - functional site D. Gall bladder E. Pancreas Small intestines - initial phase of absorption Large intestines - absorption of vitamin K and complete phase of absorption Tears: lacrimal gland  lacrimal duct  lacrimal sac  punctae  nasolacrimal glandI. (slideshare.net)
  • carcinomas
  • Except for mucoepidermoid and adenoid cystic carcinomas, which occurred equally among all races, other subtypes had significantly lower incidence among Blacks and Asians/Pacific Islanders than among Whites. (aacrjournals.org)
  • diagnostic
  • There are many diagnostic methods that can be used to determine the type of salivary gland tumour and if it is benign or malignant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many of the conditions that involve the parotid glands evolve insidiously, and diagnostic delay is a common problem. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
  • It is also helpful to consider the presenting symptoms in terms of either single or multi-gland involvement, and the type of swelling present (recurrent swelling, diffuse swelling or a well-defined lump - see table 1), as this information helps differentiation between the five diagnostic categories of disease. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
  • Diagnostic imaging techniques for salivary gland tumors include ultrasound, computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). (wikipedia.org)
  • major
  • Two major advances in recent years have changed the management of salivary disease. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
  • The major lymphatic drainage route of the maxillary antrum is through the lateral and inferior collecting trunks to the first station submandibular, parotid, and jugulodigastric nodes and through the superoposterior trunk to retropharyngeal and jugular nodes. (peacehealth.org)
  • CT is one of the established first-line imaging modalities used in the assessment of major salivary gland tumors. (ajnr.org)
  • stones
  • First, stones can now be reliably retrieved by minimally invasive techniques, preserving gland function and avoiding traditional sialoadenectomy, although the service is restricted to a few specialised centres. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
