Subjects experiencing painful dysfunction of the TMJ and diagnosed by arthrography to have displacements of the meniscus were compared to normal or asymptomatic subjects to assess condyle-fossa relationships. The groups did not differ by linear or area determinations of the P A ratio. The use of plain film alone is not adequate for diagnosis or assessment of treatment if abnormalities of meniscus function are the primary etiology.
