Abstract:

Unilateral condylar hyperplasia is the main cause of mandibular asymmetry. Radionuclide bone scanning is a useful procedure for functional evaluation of temporomandibular joint. In this study, ۳۹ patients with normal bone scan and no facial asymmetry were studied. All patients were below ۲۲ years of age. Normal condylar uptake was determined in this group of patients. Right & left condylar uptakes were not completely identical and some difference (Below ۱۰%) between right and left condylar uptake was seen. No significant difference in condylar uptake in male & female patients were observed (P=۰.۲۶, α=۰.۰۵).
