Abstract: In the diagnosis of parotid gland tumors, three major questions need to be answered. First, is the mass intra glandular or extraglandular? Second, is it benign or malignant? Third, does it lie deep to or superficial to the facial nerve? Computerized tomography is a relatively new diagnostic technique and when used in conjunction with sialography can provide very useful preoperative information about parotid lesions. A case is presented in which computerized tomography sialography was performed preoperatively in a patient with a parotid gland swelling and greatly assisted in the diagnosis and operative treatment. The technique is described in detail and previous reports of the procedure are reviewed. © 1988.
