Diagnostic imaging has been of recent and unique importance in substantiating the clinically suspected existence of internal derangements of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) caused by disk displacement. These abnormalities were first depicted by arthrography and now are confirmed with modern advances in state-of-the-art imaging technology. The purpose of this review is to provide an insight into the pathophysiology of internal derangements of the TMJ and to provide an overview of the relative merits of the differring imaging modalities in the rapidly evolving diagnostic armamentarium.
