Objective. Assessment to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as diagnosis method in salivary glands pathology of aged patients. Patients and Methods. We present eighteen 65 year and over patients with salivary glands diseases, studied by RMI, with the 1.5 T system, performed imaging spin echo T1-weighted sequences on coronal and tranverse plans, and spin echo T2-weighted sequences on tranverse plans. The scan thickness was 3 mm. Results. MRI showed, mainly, homogeneous imaging of low-to-intermediate signal intensity on spin echo TI and high signal intensity on T2 in tumoral benign pathology and heterogeneous imaging of low-to-intermediate signal intensity on spin echo TI and T2 in tumoral malign pathology. MRI confirmed the presence of the glands salivary diseases, and permits the evaluation of the relationship of lesions to the facial nerve and vascular complex; and extension on head and neck. Conclusions. Today MRI is the best imaging diagnosis method in the study of salivary glands tumours in aged patients
