Our radiological studyof the mandibular salivary gland was aimed to investigate the intraglandular ducts systemin both gazelle and sheep. Eight mandibular glands and three types of contras media were used.The radiological parameters wereKv. 80 , time exposure 10 msec and focus film distance 80 cm . Our result showed that the mandibular salivary gland in gazelle made up of three lobes (dorsal ,middle and ventral lobes). The duct system appeared as highly branched and the main execratory duct was made of the unitedof three lobar ducts . While in sheep, the gland made up of four lobes (cranial ,middle ,caudal and accessory) andthe mainexceratory duct formed from united offour lobar ducts.
