The primary step in diagnosis of the temporomandibular joint disorders tmd is clinical evaluation but special imaging modalities are needed to study the tmj due to the complexity in its anatomy and thereby the pathology there are various modalities of studying the tmj which can be invasive or non invasive. The subtlety of the expected findings and the amount of detail required should be considered when selecting the examination to perform however according to the international consortium on diagnosis of temporomandibular disorders the only imaging technique with adequate validity to diagnose degenerative joint disease is ct imaging if soft tissue information such as disk position is necessary for patient care mr imaging is appropriate. The temporomandibular joint tmj is an anatomically and biomechanically complex structure understanding how this structure grows and functions is essential to accurate radiographic evaluation this article discusses the anatomy function and growth and development of the tmj and how growth changes can affect the morphology of the craniofacial structures accordingly the radiographic appearance of the entities that may alter the tmj are discussed including developmental degenerative .
