Thirty-four temporomandibular joints (TMJ) were examined in 17 normal subjects with two superconductive MR units at 1T and 1.5T. TMJ evaluation was performed with both SE sequences in occlusal position and with "fast" sequences (flash) during the gradual opening of the mouth. Therefore, both the anatomic features of the TMJs and their dynamic behavior during mouth opening were analyzed. The information acquired allowed the complete and non-invasive evaluation of TMJ function. The knowledge of the normal anatomic and functional patterns is of paramount importance for the diagnostic approach to TMJ pathologic conditions.
