Using electrovibratography (EVG), the vibrations of 309 temporomandibular joints (TMJs) from 213 patients with clinical symptoms of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) were compared to TMJ arthrography. Of 309 imaged joints, 221 had an internal derangement (ID) and 88 were arthrographically normal (NID). Among the parameters derived from the power spectrum function of joint vibration, the total power density from 0 to 600 Hz (I(T)), the peak power density I(max)), and the power density at… CONTINUE READING
