[Abstract] The pathological types of parotid gland tumors are diverse and the differential diagnosis of parotid gland tumors is difficult. The images of different types of parotid gland tumors are similar sometimes. Conventional MR imaging is often difficult to distinguish the tumor types. In recent years, a series of new magnetic resonance technologies, such as diffusion-weighted imaging, arterial spin labeling, susceptibility-weighted imaging, amide proton transfer weighted imaging has been developed rapidly and radiomics has been applied to parotid gland tumors. These new technologies can not only improve the sensitivity in discovering tumors but analyze the blood perfusion and tissue metabolism of tumors quantitatively. To extract the imaging features of tumors and establish models, it can provide more accurate supplementary information for the diagnosis of parotid tumors. This paper has reviewed the progress of MRI technology and applications of radiomics in parotid gland tumors to improve the comprehensive assessment of parotid gland tumors.
