Protocol to condilar position evaluation in CBCT

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The diagnosis of a temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is based on a careful anamnesis, a correct clinical examination and often supported by complementary diagnostic exams, such as Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). CBCT is useful in the evaluation of anatomical and anthropometric factors that predispose, trigger, and perpetuate these TMD. Among these factors is the location of the mandibular condyle in the glenoid cavity. Thus, the main objective of this study is to create an imaging protocol for the evaluation of condylar position in CBCT, given the lack of guidelines in this area. The protocol created and presented here allows, besides the objectivity of the imaging evaluation, to make studies on this topic comparable.
