Fifteen patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunction were examined by computed tomography using standard CT techniques. The data obtained were evaluated and correlated with arthrographic findings or surgical observations. CT scans may become a valid alternative to the often painful procedure of arthrography for assessment of temporomandibular joint pathology if the potential pitfalls are avoided.
