Gland diseases: new perspectives in diagnostic radiology

Authors: Antonio Barile, Luca Brunese, Andrea Giovagnoni


Although a systematic approach remains crucial for an accurate diagnosis of gland disease, increased attention is paid mainly to the role of diagnostic radiology on its detection. In the last few years, the clinical benefits offered by different diagnostic tools have become essential for defining a still challenging condition which includes a broad spectrum of disease. Therefore, several inflammatory disorders, partly due to autoimmune diseases, could affect gland regions, other than anomalies of the cellularity, mainly due to tumors.
