Cone beam CT (CBCT) is a new technique for maxillofacial imaging. We describe a reconstruction technique for radiographic examination of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) using CBCT, and we further present four cases where the technique was employed. The technique provides a complete radiographic investigation of the bony components of the TMJ. The reconstructed images are of high diagnostic quality. The examination time is shorter and the patient dose is lower than that with conventional CT. It may therefore be considered as the imaging technique of choice when investigation of bony changes of the TMJ is the task at hand.
