The accuracy of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the assessment of internal derangements of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) has not been systematically evaluated. We obtained multiple 3-mm-thick sagittal and coronal MR images of 15 fresh TMJ autopsy specimens and compared the MR imaging findings with observations in corresponding sagittal cryosections. MR imaging correctly delineated the position of the disk in 11 (73%) joints and incorrectly delineated it in four (27%) joints. Disk… CONTINUE READING
