Salivary gland stone, X-ray

Salivary gland stone. X-ray of the jaw of a 36-year-old patient with a stone (white, lower left) in the right submaxillary gland. The appearance of stones (calculi) in the salivary glands is known as sialolithiasis. The formation of stones (lithiasis) in any organ, such as gallstones and kidney stones, occurs when mineral salts precipitate out of solution and clump together

EDITORS COMMENTS
This black and white X-ray print captures a fascinating medical condition known as sialolithiasis, or the presence of salivary gland stones. The image showcases the jaw of a 36-year-old patient, with a prominent white stone visible in the lower left region of their right submaxillary gland. Sialolithiasis occurs when mineral salts precipitate out of solution within the salivary glands, forming clumps that obstruct normal saliva flow. This condition is similar to other forms of lithiasis found in organs like gallstones and kidney stones. The photograph provides an insightful glimpse into this anatomical disorder, revealing the abnormality from a side view perspective. It highlights how these concretions can develop within our bodies and disrupt their proper functioning. With its monochrome aesthetic, this diagnostic imaging radiograph adds an air of scientific authenticity to any medical setting. Its detailed depiction allows healthcare professionals to study and understand such conditions more effectively. As we explore this snapshot by Science Photo Library, we are reminded once again of the intricate complexities that exist within our own biology. From anatomy enthusiasts to medical practitioners alike, this print serves as both educational material and a testament to human health research.
