Imaging of the dynamics of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is of interest for varies pathologies. High-resolution or three-dimensional assessment under active mastication is currently limited by the required realtime imaging techniques. The objective of this contribution is to investigate the application of gated retrospective cine reconstruction technique for providing high-quality dynamic images of the TMJ during active mastication.
