The oral cavity is often called the mirror of an individual’s health. The maintenance of the oral cavity is mainly dependent on saliva and its importance is unspoken, unless and until these changes exhibit their importance by a decrease or increase in its levels. Saliva is a glandular secretion secreted by the salivary glands which are exocrine in nature. Saliva acts constantly by bathing the teeth and the oral cavity, providing the flush, lubricative and protective action, all of which are essential for the maintenance of healthy oral tissues and daily functions. There are 3 major glands -parotid, sub mandibular and sublingual glands and numerous minor glands scattered throughout the oral cavity [1,2]. A wide range of disease processes may affect the salivary glands which might be inflammatory, systemic, obstructive or neoplastic in nature. Imaging plays an imperative role in detection, diagnosis and differentiation of benign from malignant lesions [2,3].
