PMID:  3399277     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Direct sagittal CT air-contrast arthrography can provide useful diagnostic information in the evaluation of disorders of the temporomandibular joint. The technique for the performance of this examination is practical and efficient, using a specifically designed head-holder, which is described. This technique effectively complements the clinical and imaging work-up of jaw dysfunction.
