Measurement Definition
Antero-posterior width (mm) The anteroposterior diameter of the condylar process
Medio-lateral width (mm) The mediolateral diameter of the condylar process
Condyle axis angle (°) Angle between the medio-lateral plane of the condylar process and the midsagittal plane
Anterior joint space (mm) The shortest distance between the posterior wall of the articular tubercle and the most anterior point of the condylar head
Superior joint space (mm) The distance between the most superior point of the mandibular fossa and the most superior point of the condylar head
Posterior joint space (mm) The shortest distance between the posterior wall of the mandibular fossa and the most posterior point of the condylar head
Depth of mandibular fossa (mm) The distance between the most superior point of the mandibular fossa and the plane formed by the most inferior points of the articular tubercle and the external meatus
Size of mandibular body (mm) The distance between the menton and gonion
