Abstract

This position statement was developed by an ad hoc committee of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology and the American Academy of Orofacial Pain. The committee reviewed the pertinent literature and drafted recommendations for imaging. This joint statement provides evidence-based recommendations and clinical guidance for applying appropriate diagnostic imaging to evaluate the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This manuscript guides the design of TMJ imaging examinations, addresses in-office CBCT imaging, and provides timely evidence-based recommendations to evaluate the TMJ bony components, also addressing the use of MRI and other modalities to evaluate TMJ involvement in different pathologic conditions.
