|MR-Assessment of the Temporomandibular Joint - Where to look and what to look for|
MR-imaging of the TMJ with surface coils in a closed and open mouth position as well as dynamic MR-series of joint motion is the method of choice and has become an important part of the workup for TMJ disorders. Radiologists have to be familiar with the anatomy, biomechanics and pathologies of the TMJ prior to reading. Therefore knowing where to look and what to look for in TMJ-MRI is crucial for musculoscelettal, head and neck as well as neuroradiologists. This poster is focused on teaching anatomy, normal and pathologic imaging findings in static as well as dynamic series and the introduction of a simple checklist how to report on a TMJ-MRI.
