What is a salivagram?

Also known as: salivagram study, salivary aspiration, radionuclide salivagram.

A salivagram is an imaging test that shows how saliva flows from the mouth into the esophagus and stomach. It’s a nuclear medicine test, which means it uses a small amount of radioactive material in order to make the saliva show up better in an imaging test.
