Computerized tomography has some limitations for diagnosis of internal derangements of the TMJ. The use of three-dimensional image reconstructions of CT data may enhance the diagnostic utility of CT. In a cadaver simulation, three-dimensional imaging was able to demonstrate the location of a displaced meniscus which was not obvious in two-dimensional sections. Location of the meniscus was aided by the use of a “transparency mode” in displaying the data.
