Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) has great potential for imaging intra- and extracapsular hard-tissue abnormality of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). CT is not the best method of imaging disk position and form. For differential diagnosis of TMJ disorders, CT is especially successful in bony lesions. The study includes 16 examples of TMJ hard-tissue abnormality. In the differential diagnosis of all cases, CT played a decisive role.
