Table 6 The signal intensity of the condyle and retrodiscal tissue on MRI

From: Characteristics of temporomandibular joint structures after mandibular condyle fractures revealed by magnetic resonance imaging

  Condyle Retrodiscal tissue
  High Low Normal High Low Normal
Dislocation    18 (38) 7 (15)   11 (23)
Displacement    10 (21) 2 (4)   8 (17)
No displacement 2 (4)   13 (28) 2 (4)   13 (28)
Lateral displacement    2 (4)    2 (4)
Chip fracture    2 (4)    2 (4)
Contralateral 1 (5)   20 (95) 2 (10)   19 (91)
  1. ( ): % in total fractured or contralateral joints
  2. p > 0.05 (statistically insignificant for signals of disc/retrodiscal tissue and fracture, chi-square test)
