Figure 3: A, Closed mouth sagittal oblique T2 fat-suppressed MR image of left TMJ demonstrates larger posterior band (open arrow) lies over the mandibular condyle (MC), thin intermediate zone (red arrow) between the MC and posterior part of the articular eminence (AE) while the anterior band (blue arrow) is located under the AE. B, Open mouth sagittal oblique T2 fat-suppressed MR image of the same side shows normal translation of MC which reaches under the apex of the AE and thin intermediate zone (yellow arrow) is located over the condyle and thus the posterior band (white arrow) and retrodiskal tissue (brown arrow) are more clearly depicted. Note the location of anterior band (pink arrow) in open mouth view
