摘要

Saliva plays an important role in supporting upper gastrointestinal tract function and oral well-being. Salivary dysfunction mainly manifests with a decrease in salivary flow. Among varieties of quantitative methods, salivary scintigraphy is a relatively noninvasive, well-tolerated, reproducible, and objective approach for functional evaluation of salivary disorders, yet the lack of precise quantitative reference values and no standardized protocol limit its generalized utilization. In this article, we review the scintigraphic performance between the visual analysis and quantitative methods in predicting Sjögren’s syndrome and verify the potential aspects of the application in interpreting different disease entities and phases of functional salivary disorders.
