Özet

AimThere is a need for a reliable, noninvasive radiological method for the assessment of salivary gland changes in Sjogren's syndrome (SS). The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of elastosonography as a noninvasive, sonographic modality evaluating tissue stiffness for salivary gland involvement in SS.
