RElevance of UltraSonography for Assessing Salivary Gland Involvement in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc)

Publication date: Jun 28, 2019

As fibrosis of salivary glands is supposed to be the main mechanism involved in Systemic sclerosis (SSc)-associated sicca syndrome, Ultrasonography , biopsy and measuring gland elasticity (by ARFI (Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse)) in SSc patients could also constitute a relevant method to assess the potential alterations of echostructure of major salivary glands and the fibrosis of Salivary Glands in this disease.
