AB  - OBJECTIVE: To explore the application of parotid R2* values for evaluating
      Sjogren syndrome (SS). METHODS: Twenty-four consecutive SS patients and 24
      sex-matched and age-matched healthy volunteers underwent bilateral parotid 3.0 T 
      magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, including blood oxygenation level dependent
      sequence. Parotid R2* values of SS patients and volunteers were compared. A
      receiver operating characteristic analysis was used to evaluate the diagnostic
      performance of parotid R2* value alone and in combination with MR nodular grade. 
      RESULTS: The left parotid R2* value was significantly lower than the right (P =
      0.006) in SS patients. Parotid R2* value in SS patients was significantly lower
      than that in healthy volunteers (P < 0.001). With a cutoff value of 64.14/s, the 
      sensitivity of the parotid R2* value was 62.5% in the diagnosis of SS. By
      combining R2* value with MR nodular grade, the sensitivity reached 87.5%.
      CONCLUSIONS: Parotid R2* value contributed to the diagnosis of Sjogren syndrome
      combined with MR nodular grade.
