Non-invasive measurement of the deep temperature of the temporomandibular joint region.

This study was carried out to non-invasively measure the deep temperature of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) region at rest and after 100 opening and closing movements of the mandible. Using a transcutaneous probe, we performed deep thermometry by the zero-heat-flow method. A RAM-Pack recording system was employed, and the data were processed by and… CONTINUE READING
