Welcome to this pedagogical training exercise regarding cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) using the Diagnostic Criteria for temporomandibular joint disorders (DC/TMD) scheme.
Radiographic examination is of paramount importance in the diagnostic assessment and treatment of patients with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). There are several imaging modalities to visualize TMJ osseous structures. Accurate evaluation of the TMJ by conventional radiography is limited by structural superimposition. CBCT is a developing technique that provides high-resolution multiplanar images meanwhile delivers substantially lower radiation dose compared to Multislice CT. This website will label the way of evaluating TMJ osseous structures using CBCT imaging.
Thank you for your kind participation!
