Tibular mandibular joint: TMJ disorders – Symptoms and causes

Guide | Physical Therapy Guide to Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

The American Physical Therapy Association believes that consumers should have access to information that could help them make health care decisions and also prepare them for their visit with their health care provider.

APTA has determined that the following articles provide the best scientific evidence for how to treat TMD. The articles report recent research and give an overview of the standards of practice for the treatment of TMD both in the United States and internationally. The article titles are linked either to a PubMed abstract of the article or free full text so that you can read it or print out a copy to bring with you to your health care provider.

(PDF) Temporomandibular disorder or not? A case report



but disequilibrium (20–45%),


vertigo, dizziness, and less frequently, signs of

trigeminal (12–19%), and facial (17%) dysfunction

can occur.


These last-mentioned symptoms and

signs occur when the tumor is quite large, greater

than 20 mm, as it was in this patient, and compresses

cranial nerves V and VII, causing the orofacial pain

experienced by the patient. In addition to this, the

possible association/relationship of the other otoves-

tibular symptoms with craniomandibular disorders,

as reported in previous articles,


and the frequency

of presbycusis in people over 50, which could also

have been the cause of the patient’s hearing loss,

contributed to the error in the initial diagnosis.

Although cases of acoustic neuroma simulating

TMD, toothache or orofacial pain are reported in

the dental literature,


they are not usually so

frequent that dentists include them in their differen-

tial diagnosis. In all these cases, an initial treatment

was performed for toothache, for TMD or for

trigeminal neuralgia, without positive results. This

fact reveals that a further brain clinical evaluation

or consultation with an otolaryngologist or a neurol-

ogist may be necessary when a patient with signs and

symptoms of a possible TMD reports otovestibular

symptoms such as unilateral hearing loss, ear fullness

sensation, disequilibrium, sensation of dizziness,

tinnitus, or any other neurological symptoms.


Patients with signs and symptoms of TMD associ-

ated with otovestibular symptoms and negative

initial response to dental or TMD treatment should

be referred for a further investigation by an otolaryn-

gologist or a neurologist. These subspecialists will

carry out the appropriate tests for the specific case,

such as MRI and audiogram, among others, to rule

out an intracranial or internal auditory canal tumor.

    The Skull and Pectoral Girdle of the Parasemionotid Fish Watsonulus eugnathoides from the Early Triassic Sakamena Group of Madagascar, with Comments on the Relationships of the Holostean Fishes on JSTOR


    Watsonulus eugnathoides (Piveteau, 1935) is a parasemionotid fish from Early Triassic rocks of Madagascar. The skull and pectoral girdle of this holostean are described from new material. The braincase retains a number of primitive chondrostean-like characters such as an open lateral cranial fissure and frequently open vestibular fontanelle, presence of an endochondral intercalar without membranous outgrowths, and fusion between most of the the endochondral bones in the adult, but is otherwise similar to “caturids” such as Heterolepidotus. The dermal skull retains one major, putatively primitive, feature shared with chondrosteans, a preopercular with a broad dorsal edge. The dermal shoulder girdle retains a chondrostean-style clavicle, but the endochondral shoulder girdle is most similar to teleosts among actinopterygians. Watsonulus also has an Amia-style jaw joint. The non-reduced clavicle and dorsally expanded preoperculum are lost in all other non-parasemionotid neopterygians (the reductions being synapomorphies), and the combination of these two primitive characters with an Amia-style jaw in Watsonulus shows that gars and teleosts are more closely related to each other than either is to Amia.

    Journal Information

    The Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology (JVP) publishes original contributions
    on all aspects of vertebrate paleontology, including biostratigraphy, evolution,
    functional morphology, ichnology, paleoanthropology, paleobiogeography, paleoecology,
    phylogeny, systematics, taphonomy, and vertebrate origins. JVP has been published
    since 1984 by the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP). The journal was
    founded in 1980 by Dr. Jiri Zidek at the University of Oklahoma. A subscription
    to the printed edition of JVP and its supplements (occasional SVP Memoirs and
    the annual Program and Abstracts volume) is included with regular and student
    membership in SVP (www.vertpaleo.org)

    Publisher Information

    » Squat, Press, Extend or Flex for Strong Legs and Healthy Knees

    For decades the Leg Extension, Squat, Leg Press and Lunge have all been used by general fitness clients, rehab patients, and elite athletes alike without much on the side of specific research to help the fitness coach in determining which exercise to use or recommend for a specific goal or need. To understand the concepts and summaries of this article let’s start by taking an in-depth look at the internal components of the knee. As a trainer or coach you will probably hear over and over again about knee pain in all the people you will work with. Hence, a clear understanding of knee function and how the internal components affect such function is critical for programming, progressions, and when needed, regressions.

    The knee, in its simplest description, is the union of the Femur, Tibia, and Fibula with a fourth and independent triangular bone that covers the front union, the Patella. Fig 1. Together, along with the structures that keep these bones aligned and able to provide us with flexible motion, are what we refer to as the Knee Joint. Technically named a synovial joint the knee is the largest and most complicated joint in the body and commonly referred to as a “hinge” joint for its linear and door like movement patterns.

    Tendon and Cartilage Anatomy of the Knee
    Using figures 2a through 2d, we will start by identifying the four ligaments along with the menisci, a type of hybrid cartilage/ligament which acts as a shock absorbing barrier between the articular cartilage on the ends of the Femur and Tibia. Keeping in mind that figures 2a through 2d are all of the right knee, looking at it as if we were looking at someone standing directly in front of you, your view towards the left would be the lateral side of the body while your view towards the right would be towards the middle of the body, hence the term “medial” where the two inner portions of the knee would touch. Lateral Collateral Ligament or “LCL” sometimes also called the “Fibular Collateral Ligament” for its attachment sites connects the lateral side of the Femur to the lateral side of the Fibula. The main purpose of this structure is to limit the sideways motion of the knee. Therefore, any hyper or excessive movement in which the knee has to over stabilize against a sudden change of direction that the surrounding musculature can’t control will damage this ligament. Medial Collateral Ligament or “MCL” sometimes also called the “Tibular Collateral Ligament for its attachment sites connects the medial side of the Femur to the medial side of the Tibia. Like the LCL, the MCL limits the sideways motion of the knee and is generally injured when the stress of quickly changing directions over powers the force and stabilizing abilities of the surrounding musculature. Some common athletic activities that would be culprits for such injuries are, but not limited to, racquetball, tennis, basketball, football, & soccer while common non athletic ADL’s that would injure these two structures are stepping out of a car, taking a corner in a grocery store isle while pushing your cart, or missing a step while walking and quickly having to regain control in a sideways motion. Anterior Cruciate Ligament “ACL” and Posterior Cruciate Ligament “PCL”. The word “cruciate” meaning “crossing” from one side to the other and/or one over the other. The ACL connects the Femur to the Tibia along the front center part of the knee. Specifically, one end connects to the anterior Tibia along the medial side of the Tibias’ sagittal line while the other end connects to the deep portion (almost to the rear but not quite) of the Femur along the lateral side of the Femurs’ sagittal line. If you look carefully at fig. 2c, you will be able to identify a slight diagonal angle to this ligament. The PCL is the strongest ligament and primary stabilizer of the knee also connecting the Femur to the Tibia but through the posterior side. (Fig. 2d). The ACL, one of the most common ligaments injured in sports, is responsible for controlling the allowable rotation of the knee along with limiting the forward trajection of the Tibia under the Femur during, but not limited to, squatting, lunging, landing, running, and walking while the PCL limits the backwards motion of the knee. Recent studies also indicate that the PCL also prevents medial-lateral (side to side) and rotary movements. (10) The ACL is most commonly injured quick rotational movements where the foot is planted but the upper body is changing directions in a rotational fashion. An athletic example of such injury is when a basketball player is coming down from a rebound and accelerating with the upper torso in a direction opposite to how the feet are grounded without pivoting. An ADL example would be someone washing dishes with both feet grounded and abruptly twisting the upper torso, hips, and femur in an opposite directions to that of which the feet are facing without allowing for a slight pivot or complete re positioning of the foot. Cartilage, sometimes referred to as “articular cartilage” can be found at the end of the Fibula, Tibia, Fibula, and behind the Patella. Cartilage is a type of connective tissue that has no blood vessels or lymphatic’s which makes it a tissue which is very slow to heal. It also has no nerves therefore insensitive. Hence, the ability to absorb the impact, especially in the knees, and transfer forces in a pain free manner. In the knee we have two types of cartilage, Hyaline which covers the end of the Femur, Tibia, & Fibula and the Menisci, a specialized hybrid type of cartilage that provides for the needed cushioning between the Femur and Tibia.

    Composition of Ligaments and Cartilage Structures
    Ligaments, which connect one bone to another are composed of approximately 70% water and 30% organic matrix along with fibrocytes, the specific type of cells that make up tendons and ligaments (1,2). Without getting into chemistry and biology too deeply, the organic matrix is a combination of ground substance, (a combination of protein and carbohydrate complexes forming a gel like substance) and Collagen. Fig. 3.

    To give further explanation, Fig. 4 illustrates the composition of the Organic Matrix into a classification of its internal composition. In Ligaments and Tendons, 90% of the Organic Substance is Collagen. Collagen comprises 25 to 30% of the protein in the body with at least 15 types of collagens currently known with more recent studies identifying more than 20 types! (2, 4) Collagen Fig.4 production in the body can vary from individual to individual with the aging process and genetics playing the biggest role in the ability to make adequate amounts for tissue repair and maintenance. In tendons and ligaments the type of Collagen found is called Type 1 which identifies its structural alignment, splice variants, and function when compared to the other many types of collagen in the body. (3, 4) Type 1 collagen fibers tend to be more rigid than Type 2. Hence, the ability to withstand the forces generated by movement and keep the bones they hold together without a daily injury.

    Cartilage, which covers the end of all bones that touch each other is a bit different in its composition when compared to ligaments and tendons. When discussing the ligaments above and as will be discussed in part 2 of this series when we cover tendons, the cells that make up those structures are called “fibrocytes”. In Cartilage the cells are called Chondrocytes and the type of collagen is Type 2 vs. Type 1 in tendons and ligaments. (1,6,7)

    Varieties of Cartilage
    In the human body we can find three (3) types of cartilage.

    1- Hyaline or Articular Cartilage is the main type of cartilage we will focus on with this article. This type of cartilage is most specifically found at the end of the long bones such as the Femur, Tibia, Fibula, Humerus, Radial, and Ulna but is also present in the sternum, ribs, and several other locations along the skeleton. It is bluish white in color, flexible, with low friction qualities that resist wear and tear and designed to bear and distribute loads. Therefore able to provide the cushioning needed for repetitive movements such as walking, running, jumping which are commonly referred to our “Activities of Daily Living” or “ADL’s, exercise, and sports.

    2- Fibrocartilage , the second type of cartilage we will discuss. It can be temporarily found at bone fracture sites and is present in three major locations in the body. The intervertebral disks of the spine, covering the mandibular condyle in the temporomandibular joint, and in the Meniscus of the knee. Hence, the importance of identifying its composition and purpose.

    3- Elastic Cartilage, the third type of cartilage is found I the pharyngotympanic tubes, epiglottis, and earlobes where the supportive tissue (cartilage) must possess elasticity. Hence, the name elastic cartilage.

    Meniscus, is the final structure we will discuss in this article. (Fig 2b) The meniscus are two C shapes hybrid type of cartilage that act as the shock absorption system of the knee. The menisci help distribute stresses over a broad area of articular cartilage, absorb shock during dynamic loading, and help with joint lubrication. Unlike articular cartilage which is predominantly composed of Type 2 Collagen in the organic matrix, Menisci tissue is made up of the same coarse Type 1 Collagen Organic Matrix found in Tendons and Ligaments giving the meniscus the great tensile stiffness it exhibits. (9) Without the menisci, the daily stress of walking and the compounded effect of running, jumping, and weightlifting would be impossible. The menisci offer the additional protection to the articular cartilage covering the ends of the Femur and Tibia while simultaneously aiding in the lubrication of all the internal components of the knee.

    Knee Treatment Forum Knee osteoarthritis – all about the symptoms and treatment of the disease.Treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee joint: medication and non-medication methods. Deforming osteoarthritis of the knee joint: what is it, the reasons. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is a chronic and progressive degenerative process that affects the cartilage tissue, subchondrial bones and adjacent muscles and ligaments. Normally, cartilage lines the surface of the joint, protecting the heads of the femur and tibia and performing a shock-absorbing function. Knee osteoarthritis of the 1st degree.The first stage of the disease can be almost asymptomatic. Deforming osteoarthritis of the knee joints (aka gonarthrosis or abbreviated DOA) is a degenerative-dystrophic disease of the knee joint, which is characterized by chronic, steadily progressing. The disease begins with changes in the articular cartilage, due to which the articular surfaces of the bones slip. Malnutrition and loss of elasticity lead to its dystrophy (thinning) and resorption, while the bone tissue of the articular surfaces is exposed, sliding is disturbed, the joint space narrows, and the biomechanics of the joint changes.Gonarthrosis or deforming osteoarthritis of the knee joint is a chronically developing pathology caused by premature aging and degenerative changes in the articular cartilage, resulting in its destruction. The disease is constantly progressing and leads to deformation of the joint, limitation of its mobility, and the neglected process is, unfortunately, disability and disability. If we are talking about the treatment of gonarthrosis of the 2nd degree of the knee joint, then this indicates the appearance of more intense pain, especially in the morning when the patient gets out of bed and begins to move.A feeling of discomfort while driving is added. With arthrosis of the knee joint of the 2nd degree, surgical intervention may also be necessary. Endoprosthetics is a modern alternative to surgery. At the second and even the third stage of arthrosis, progressive doctors recommend to their patients the intra-articular administration of a synovial fluid substitute, for example, Noltrex. The knee is enlarged and deformed. With osteoarthritis of the knee joint of grade 3, there is almost no cartilage tissue inside the joint, and with further progression of the disease, the bones grow together, which leads to complete immobility of the lower limb.The tactics of treating patients with severe osteoarthritis of the knee joint at the Yusupov hospital are developed at a meeting of the Expert Council with the participation of professors and doctors of the highest category. Leading rheumatologists collectively determine the severity of the disease after examining the X-ray. Treatment of arthrosis of the 2nd degree. Stem cells for knee treatment. Method according to Neumyvakin. Mud treatment. Osteoarthritis in the knee joint remains active and will manifest itself again in the near future. Note that at 3 tbsp.doctors predominantly do not resort to mini-invasive approaches. And this is a kind of astroscope of completely healthy surfaces, they are perfectly smooth. Treatment of the knee joint according to the method of Neumyvakin, a professor of space medicine, involves the use of ordinary hydrogen peroxide orally (by mouth), by injection or topically (in the form of compresses, lotions on the knee). Traditional orthopedic doctors treat this method extremely and extremely negatively. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is a consequence of its chronic inflammation, which causes degenerative changes in the tissues.The reasons for this phenomenon are many and varied, but they all give the same effect – an inflammatory process affecting cartilage tissue, ligaments, meniscus, etc. As a result, the cartilage becomes thinner, and the bones begin to rub against each other during movement, at the same time irritating the nerve fibers located nearby. Surgical treatment of grade 1-3 osteoarthritis. If conservative methods are ineffective, the patient is referred for surgical treatment. Deforming osteoarthritis of the knee joint has a chronic course and develops over several years.Patients over the age of 50 prevail. In 2/3 of cases, women predominate. How does the disease develop? Osteoarthritis of the 2nd degree – leads to a thinning of the cartilage up to 1.5-2.0 mm (the norm is 2.5-3.0 mm), there is a narrowing of the joint space, small single bone growths (osteophytes) appear. The inflammatory process is wavy in nature, alternating with phases of remission and exacerbation. Grade 1-2 gonarthrosis is accompanied by edema and weakness of the thigh muscles. The pain worries at rest, when the weather changes, after walking, fatigue is felt.Osteoarthritis of the 2nd degree of the knee joint. Osteoarthritis is a type of arthrosis associated with degeneration of the articular cartilage tissue. This type of pathological processes in the human body is common and requires further medical supervision. Grade 2 osteoarthritis of the knee is associated with thinning of the cartilage, which leads to a feeling of stiffness and pain when walking. Long-term untreated inflammatory process of the articular surface provokes a formidable complication – deforming osteoarthritis.Against the background of severe deformities of stage II of osteoarthritis, irreversible complications often occur, so the inflammation must be suppressed as soon as possible. osteoarthritis of the hip joint folk remedies the standard of treatment of the knee joint preparation for the joints of dogs

For an extensive diagnosis, the specialist collects information from the patient: the time of the onset of the first symptoms, the nature and location of pain, and accompanying factors. As part of the comprehensive treatment of arthrosis and osteoarthritis, orthopedic surgeons often prescribe warming compresses.The method only complements the therapy and cannot completely cure the disease. However, with the right approach, the procedures have a powerful analgesic effect – sometimes even stronger than ointments and other topical agents. How to make compresses correctly and what is recommended for these purposes in the first place? Knee pain is a common complaint that can occur in people of any age. The knee is a hinge-type joint that allows the leg to flex and extend.Of all joints in the body, the knee is at the highest risk for injury, age-related wear and tear and arthritis.

    Knee arthrosis treatment effectively

    My mom’s knees hurt. Well, when she started taking artfish, she can’t walk. That’s why.who would not say it so happens. she can’t get out of bed. we called, they said that we need bed rest. Well, this will make some changes How to treat TMJ at home. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is paired, it attaches the lower jaw to the skull. A colossal load falls on him: chewing, speech, facial movements, etc. For various reasons, any person can develop TMJ dysfunction. It leads to inflammation, damage, pain. Pain in facial muscles Sometimes the head is spinning.Treatment of TMJ with traditional medicine. If TMJ symptoms are mild, you can get home treatment. Treatment with folk remedies externally involves the imposition of herbal compresses and ointments. For example, the tactics of treating arthrosis of the mandibular joint. Ideally, it is optimal to start treatment of TMJ arthrosis at stages 1 or 2. First of all, it is important to exclude risk factors – excessive mechanical stress, prolonged opening of the mouth, for example, at a dentist’s appointment, etc. The therapy should be continuous and complex – individual orthopedic measures or diet are not enough.The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone. It allows the lower jaw to move, and the person to talk and chew food. If the muscles, cartilage and tendons are in order, the movement does not cause any inconvenience: it is a painless and natural process. However, the temporomandibular joint is a very flexible joint, and like all movable joints in the human body, it is susceptible to various diseases. Painful sensations, creaking, clicks when moving the jaw, as well as unreasonable congestion in the ears immediately indicate problems with the joint.Arthrosis of the jaw joint – all about the symptoms and treatment of the disease. You will learn what osteoarthritis of the jaw is, what degrees and stages are, the main causes of the disease, methods of diagnosis and treatment (medication, physiotherapy, exercise therapy). Possible complications and prevention. The human jaw joint is quite complex, because we can move the jaw back and forth, left and right, and even in a circle. This process involves not only the glenoid fossa and the head of the lower jaw, but also the meniscus, capsule and joint ligaments.Therefore, arthrosis of the jaw joint leads to a whole range of disorders associated with dystrophy and destruction of articular cartilage. Jaw arthritis. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the temporal bone to the lower jaw and provides mobility of the latter. Diagnosis of arthritis of the temporomandibular joint is complicated by the fact that x-rays, except in cases with ligament rupture, do not show abnormalities. Signs of inflammation are present in the blood test; in rheumatoid arthritis, the content of C-reactive protein increases.Treatment of arthritis of the jaw joint aims to relieve pain and restore the functionality of the lower jaw as soon as possible, therefore, pain relievers are used, and good results are achieved by prescribing physiotherapy Remember! Applying a variety of folk remedies to scratched skin makes it very difficult to establish the correct diagnosis, the ability to carry out some analyzes, contributes to the development of pustular and other complications. Stages of the initial examination. After collecting an anamnesis, the doctor will conduct a general examination, measure your temperature, find out if you are suffering from excessive sweating, whether there has been any special fatigue and weight loss recently.Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain can range from mild to severe, and pain relievers are prescribed depending on the level of pain and the underlying cause. For the treatment of painful dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, local anesthetics, and group vitamins are most often used. NSAIDs, muscle relaxants are most effective for nociceptive pain, and anticonvulsants, antidepressants, local anesthetics, and preparations of B vitamins are most effective for neuropathic pain.Arthritis of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is an inflammatory disease that affects the joint that connects the temporal bone of the skull to the lower jaw. This disease can affect both one side and both temporomandibular joints. The acute period of the disease is characterized by manifestations in the form of sharp pains localized in the affected joint, as well as their irradiation to the temple, ear, etc. In addition to pain, arthritis of the TMJ can manifest itself: Swelling and redness of the skin over the joint; An increase in the general body temperature of the patient; Restriction of opening the mouth and the impossibility of completely closing the teeth.

    90,000 Fractures of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia

    The intercondylar eminence is an internal tubercle on the tibia, located between its condyles, on the sides of which the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments are attached. Fractures of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia are extremely rare. This fracture is a tearing character preceded by excessive stretching of the cruciate ligaments.There are three types of this injury:

    Type 1: partial separation without displacement

    Type 2: partial separation with offset

    Type 3: complete separation of the intercondylar eminence.

    Causes of trauma.

    Among the reasons are injuries of indirect impact: falling from a great height on an outstretched leg; when playing sports, when the leg is fixed, and the torso and thigh are turned (ski walking, playing football, speed skating), etc.

    Signs of intercondylar eminence fracture.

    • acute knee pain
    • edema and a sharp increase in the knee joint in the amount of
    • Inability to perform any movements in the knee joint
    • hemorrhage may occur in the joint cavity (hemarthrosis)
    • with a rupture of the cruciate ligaments, symptoms of “drawer” may be observed (unnatural displacement of the lower leg back and forth)

    Trauma diagnosis.

    • Examination of the victim by a traumatologist
    • Mandatory X-ray (X-ray in straight and lateral surfaces)
    • Computed tomography
    • MRI
    • Arthroscopy (if there is a suspicion of damage to the cruciate ligaments, knee meniscus)


    • Traumatologist
    • Surgeon


    Treatment of such an injury depends on the severity of the fracture. For injuries without displacement of fragments and for fractures of the apex of the intercondylar eminence, conservative treatment is prescribed:

    • Do a puncture of the joint (remove accumulated blood and fluid from the knee joint, inject an anesthetic solution)
    • The limb is fixed with a plasterboard (for 1.5-2 months)
    • Further, rehabilitation procedures are prescribed.

    If the displacement of the fragments of the eminence is very significant, then surgery is indicated, in which the fragments are removed or fixed in their place with the help. With significant displacements of the fragments of the intercondylar eminence, surgical treatment is undertaken. It consists in removing fragments or fixing them in place with a special suture. Further, restorative treatment is carried out.


    To restore the motor function of the knee joint, the patient is prescribed restorative procedures:

    • Massage Therapy
    • Physiotherapy (thermal procedures)
    • LFC

    Disability returns in 6-8 weeks.

    90,000 MRI of joints in Tomsk

    The main method in modern diagnostics of traumatic injuries, degenerative, inflammatory and tumor diseases of joints and surrounding soft tissues. This is the only non-invasive method for visualizing the soft tissue component of the joint: tendons, ligaments, menisci, cartilage, periarticular bursae.

    The main method in modern diagnostics of traumatic injuries, degenerative, inflammatory and tumor diseases of joints and surrounding soft tissues.This is the only non-invasive method for visualizing the soft tissue component of the joint: tendons, ligaments, menisci, cartilage, periarticular bursae.

    Magnetic resonance imaging of joints is unique. It makes it possible to see and evaluate not only the bone structures, which are also available for X-ray techniques, but also the smallest structural elements of our body, such as, for example, tendon fibers or individual muscle bundles, the ligamentous apparatus of the joint, menisci, articular lips, the condition of cartilage tissue, etc. T.d.

    No other method of radiological diagnostics gives such a contrast of various tissues and structures, which in turn makes it possible to see even minimal pathological changes. At the same time, there is no harmful effect on the patient.

    In terms of its information content, the MR method for assessing pathological processes can be compared only with the invasive technique – arthroscopy.

    The main indications for the study are:

    • Previous joint injury;
    • pain in the projection of the joint;
    • redness, limitation of movement and / or weakness, etc.

    MRI examinations of temporomandibular, shoulder, elbow, knee, hip, ankle joints, foot and hand joints are carried out in our centers.

    MRI of joints , as a diagnostic method, reveals:

    various types of traumatic injuries (including sports injuries) , such as sprains, contusions of muscles and bone tissue, tendon injuries, detailed by the degree of damage;

    Rupture of the posterior horn of the internal meniscus according to St oller, III a degree.

    Rupture of the articular lip of the hip joint.

    variants of degenerative changes;

    Initial manifestations of deforming arthrosis of the hip joint in the form of thinning of the hyaline cartilage.

    Inflammatory changes in the early stages (not detected by classical X-ray examination), such as arthritis of various etiologies, aseptic necrosis, etc.etc .;

    The second stage of aseptic necrosis of the tibial head – linear peripheral zone of hypointense signal on T1 WI in the subchondral parts of the femoral head.

    congenital pathologies;

    – chondropathy;

    – tumor processes of bones and soft tissues in the projection of the joints.

    MRI examinations of joints do not require any special preliminary preparation; as a rule, they are carried out without the use of a contrast medium, and are non-invasive.

    X-ray department. Paid services – Novosibirsk Regional Hospital

    All studies are carried out with minimal radiation exposure on equipment manufactured by companies in Germany and Finland.The department is equipped with fourth-generation X-ray machines.

    The qualifications of doctors and X-ray technicians of the X-ray department, as well as modern equipment, make it possible to perform all types of diagnostic procedures when examining patients in the specialized departments of the hospital, including the department of neonatal pathology, which is a particularly complex and urgent issue in radiology.

    Among the total number of studies, a large proportion is occupied by special and exclusive methods.

    The diagnostic work of the department is organized around the clock. It should be noted that not only residents of the city of Novosibirsk and the region, but the Siberian region as a whole, asked for help. Examinations are carried out both in a hospital and in an advisory clinic.

    The department has 8 X-ray units, among which there are 3 modern digital X-ray units: 2 Philips Diagnost 94 and Siemens Icons R200

    The above X-ray machines belong to the category of the latest technological developments in X-ray diagnostic equipment.In the city of Novosibirsk and regional hospitals, there are no such devices equipped with DSI.

    • Magnetic resonance imaging.

    The department operates a new generation GE SIGNA HDX magnetic resonance tomograph with a magnetic field power of 1.5 T and a Siemens Emouthion 16 multispiral computed tomograph.

    The main advantages of MRI are:

    • reliable examination results in two- and three-dimensional images,
    • no radiation, obtaining an image comparable to the anatomical with any orientation of the scanning plane,
    • high resolution, high natural contrast,
    • good tolerance and safety of the used paramagnetic contrast agents to increase the sensitivity and specificity of MR – diagnostics.

    The main advantages of our MRI scanner are the availability of modern software products.

    An MRI scan is completely harmless. However, there are some contraindications to its implementation. First of all, this applies to patients who have been implanted with a pacemaker, ferromagnetic implants and / or grafts, as well as patients weighing more than 130 kg.

    Multispiral computed tomography

    A modern method of radiation diagnostics, which makes it possible to obtain a layer-by-layer image of any area of ​​a person with a slice thickness of 0.5 mm to 10 mm, to assess the state of the organs and tissues under study, the localization and prevalence of the pathological process.The main advantages of MSCT are the short duration of the study (only 1-5 min) with a sufficiently high spatial resolution of the image. The multispiral computed tomography method has practically no contraindications. A limitation to the study is the presence of an allergy to iodine-containing contrast agents.

    How is the multispiral computed tomography (MSCT) procedure performed

    When preparing for a computed tomography, it is recommended that you stop eating and drinking water about four hours before the examination (if you need to take the medicine, you can drink it with a little water).

    Computed tomography takes up to 1 to 5 minutes per study area. In the process of preparation, the doctor gives individual recommendations, the implementation of which will make the examination as effective and informative as possible.

    If an examination of the abdominal or pelvic organs is carried out, the patient is advised to take a contrast agent according to a special scheme. A contrast agent is injected through a dropper inserted into the ulnar vein as indicated.

    After a computed tomography (CT) scan, you can return to your normal lifestyle. If you have been injected with contrast material, then you will be given special recommendations. The procedure of computerized X-ray and magnetic resonance imaging is painless, minimally invasive.

      MRI wrist joint (hand)

      Most often, wrist problems appear as a result of injuries, bumps, falls, or after inflammation. MRI does not show us bone, but shows soft tissue, tendons, bone marrow, cartilage, and ligaments. It is MRI that allows us to detect changes and abnormalities that are not diagnosed by other methods.Sometimes, during MRI of the wrist joint and hand, contrast is injected to examine this area in a “highlighted form”.

      Preparing for an MRI session

      No special interventions requiring lifestyle and nutritional changes are required. It is enough for the patient to know that an MRI scan of the elbow, shoulder, knees or wrist is absolutely safe and painless.

      How is the MRI study

      All joint examinations are performed lying down using special diagnostic coils.Each joint has its own coil, and its shape and electronic filling allows you to see the most detailed picture.

      When the most clear image of the joints is required, a contrast scan is prescribed. To do this, before the start of the session, the patient is injected intravenously with a solution that improves visualization of the area under study.

      During the procedure, the operator observes the patient through the glass from a neighboring office, maintains voice communication with him, monitors the readings on the monitor.A single object, such as an MRI of the knee, without contrast, takes about 45 minutes to examine. A session using contrast lasts longer (more than 1 hour), its cost is higher. The practical advantage of contrast is that it helps to notice violations at the earliest stage, when their size does not exceed a millimeter.

      After the session, the patient waits for a decryption of the scan results for another 45-60 minutes. The patient can choose to record the study on a digital medium (DVD-disk or USB-flash drive) or a printout on Kodak X-ray film.

      What the MRI examination of the joints shows

      This type of diagnosis helps to examine in detail all the painful changes and physiological processes in the tissues, to detect diseases that have not been noticed by other methods of examination. With its help, the doctor can study in detail:

      • defects in the structure of the joints;
      • degenerative tissue changes;
      • 90,057 ligament ruptures;

      • zones of inflammatory processes;
      • zones of infectious lesions;
      • salt deposits;
      • liquid in cavities;
      • cracks and fractures;
      • neoplasms, cysts, tumors;
      • vascular deformation, circulatory disorders;
      • 90,057 innervation disorders;

      • dislocations and subluxations.

      With the help of MRI of the shoulder joint, bursitis is more quickly diagnosed, which most often manifests itself in this area, and examination of the knees and iliac joints helps to distinguish age-related changes from infectious diseases.

      MRI of joints is the most effective method for diagnosing diseases and pathologies in orthopedics. After all, it is joint damage that is considered the most common forms of injury, and both large and small joints are prone to injury.Diagnosis of injuries requires the most accurate picture of changes in the external and internal structures of the joint. The MRI method allows you to display a three-dimensional image of the examined area on the doctor’s screen, to distinguish the vasculature, nerve trunks and vessels inside the joint zone. The most difficult to diagnose are the shoulder and knee joints, as they consist of many functional structures.
