Summary of "Evaluation of Mandibular Movement Functions Using Instrumental Ultrasound System."

The article deals with routinely performed instrumental temporomandibular joint (TMJ) examinations and interpretation of findings obtained from the Arcus Digma ultrasound device in individuals with or without clinical symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). The aim of this study was to analyze mandibular movement functions and the relationship between incisors and condylar movement parameters during jaw opening, which may be helpful for clinical evaluation in these patients.

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with frequency-shifted ultrasound reflections produced by moving targets (usually red blood cells) in the bloodstream along the ultrasound axis in direct proportion to the velocity of movement of the targets, to determine both direction and velocity of blood flow.
