Answer

Numerous radiologic techniques are available in submandibular imaging. Deciding which study to obtain first is often difficult. Examination selection should be based in part on the suspected cause of the problem. The authors' institution tends to begin with plain radiography, followed by the use of computed tomography scanning with combined sialography.
