Salivary Gland Ultrasonography in Sjögren’s Syndrome: Clinical Usefulness and Future Perspectives

    Summary

    In recent years, salivary gland ultrasonography (SGUS) has emerged as a promising tool for the diagnosis and prognostic stratification of patients with primary and secondary Sjögren’s syndrome. Several studies have emphasized that salivary ultrasonography could be a highly specific tool for the diagnosis of the disease.

In this review we provide an update on the role of SGUS in the diagnostic algorithm of primary Sjögren’s syndrome.
