Abstract

In a previous study which addressed the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), an algorithm was developed to calculate the condylar displacements. The present work re-investigates the condylar displacements of the same TMJ using a new technique to eliminate the human errors which was previously found as the drawback of the method. Discrete condylar positions were obtained from magnetic resonance (MR) images of the joints. Condylar displacements were calculated using a newly developed procedure based on computer contour recognition and transformation. From this analysis, the condylar displacement was characterized as a translation of a point fixed to the condyle and a rotation of the condyle. The condylar displacement was found to be a function of the incisal opening.
