Temporomandibular joint clicking is commonly recognized as a sign of internal derangement
, and its recording is requested to make a diagnosis of disk displacement with reduction according to the most widely adopted classification and diagnostic systems, both in the clinical and in the research settings.

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD's) are a group of pathologies that affect the temporomandibular joints and its associated structures which include muscles, ligaments as well as the dental occlusion.1,2 TMD's is an all encompassing term for a variety of diseases that include internal derangement
, osteoarthritis, chronic recurrent dislocation, ankylosis, neoplasia, and infection.3,4 These disorders are most common among the 20-45 years age group with a proclivity towards the female gender.5,6 Temporomandibular disorders are very common among the population, with approximately 60-70% of all adults reporting at least one sign of TMD's throughout their life.7,8

(2) Direct or indirect MR arthrography (for both 1.5T and 3T) is employed as the standard of care in many institutions for assessing internal derangement
, as multiple studies demonstrate the accuracy advantage of these techniques, particularly of 3T MR arthrography.
