About this Book
This atlas provides a comprehensive outline of all but the very rarest salivary gland diseases, detailing the most common benign and malignant tumors with their radiological, cytopathological, and histological features. The differential diagnosis of each tumor is presented with essential tips on the use of fine needle aspiration (FNA) and making a correct diagnosis. Three separate chapters are dedicated to: introduction to salivary gland FNA with emphasis on the technique used to perform the aspiration; the surgical anatomy of these glands; and the various radiological characteristics of these lesions, including primarily CT scans and MRI studies.
