The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a symmetrical and diarthrodial joint, which is formed by the mandibular condyle and the temporal bone. Inside the joint is the articular disc, a cartilaginous, aneural and avascular structure, which interposed between the glenoid surface of the temporal bone and the articular head of the mandibular condyle. The most common joint pathology of TMJ is related to the articular disc, due to alteration of disc mobility and degenerative changes. These internal changes of the joint usually produce dysfunctional symptoms and pain. This entity named Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD) and there are various classification types in relation to symptoms, radiological and arthroscopic findings. The gold-standard imaging test for this pathology is the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)...
