We introduce a retrospective self-gated MRI reconstruction method for the imaging of the temporomandibular joint dynamics. Compared to real-time imaging the proposed technique shows an improved tempo-spatial resolution and allows for the first time the imaging of the TMJ dynamics under a continuous mastication.
