Course Description:
The IAMI TMD and Sleep Dentistry Series is a structured learning experience created to provide the clinician with core TMD/Sleep dentistry imaging knowledge.  Each course builds the foundations of knowledge for the following course.

TMD Imaging Level 1 explores the interaction between the TMJ and upper respiratory tract, and aims to help the participant understand these structures and their interactions, and how abnormality in one can lead to abnormality in the other.  Normal CBCT anatomy as it pertains to TMD diagnosis and airway analysis for sleep dentistry purposes will be reviewed as well as MRI evaluation of the normal TMJ.  This intensive two-day course gives the participant the foundational knowledge for CBCT evaluation and aids in identification of abnormal by presenting normal anatomy and biomechanics.

Specific Objectives

  • To familiarize the participant with the normal anatomy of the major contributors to TMD, orofacial pain, and obstructive sleep apnea
  • To create radiographic correlates to the anatomical structures mentioned above
  • To teach the participant to navigate through a CBCT volume identifying the relevant anatomy
  • To increase comfort with evaluating TMJ MRIs
  • To correlate the anatomy and the biomechanics and physiology of the TMJ and airway

Outcomes for TMD Imaging, Level 1 

  • Learning to identify normal radiographic anatomy will increase identification of radiographic abnormalities
  • Understanding how the anatomic structures correlate to function and dysfunction will improve treatment outcomes
  • Increased familiarity with advanced imaging techniques will enhance utilization of these techniques to reach the correct diagnosis

Description of Teaching Methods
This course will utilize lecture, hands-on and demonstration.  This is a two day, hands-on course with audience response system (clickers).  Participants should bring their own laptops with their familiar DICOM viewing software installed, as well as an external scroll mouse.  An anonymized patient's CBCT scan (16cm field of view) will be distributed.  The instructors will show graphic representations of each anatomic structure being reviewed, pausing after each one to show the participants how to find the structure on the patient's scan.  Normal anatomic MRI appearance of the TMJs will be discussed.  Biomechanics of the TMJ and physiology of the upper respiratory tract will be covered.
