Abstract

A new technique for imaging the temporomandibular joint with rotational panoramic radiography is explained and demonstrated with a tissue-equivalent phantom. In this technique the patient is displaced forward and laterally away from the side under examination. Radiographs made with the proposed technique show the temporomandibular joint with more sharpness and less distortion than do radiographs made with conventional panoramic techniques.
