Optimal mouth position for magnetic resonance imaging of the temporomandibular joint disk.

Abstract

Optimal mouth positioning for magnetic resonance imaging of the TMJ is controversial. This study evaluates the closed mouth position and partial-open mouth position for diagnostic accuracy of anterior displacement of the disk. Sixty-two joints were considered abnormal in at least one position. In the positive joints, the closed mouth position sequences were… (More)
