Sialography in Diagnosis of Parotid Tumors Abstract To the Editor.—I wish to congratulate Calcaterra et al on the thoroughness with which they evaluated the role of sialography in tumor diagnosis and for the quality of their illustrations in their article in the December 1977 issue of the Archives (103:727-729).
