Being familiar with anatomy and pathology of maxillofacial region especially in conjunction of different pathologies and systemic conditions would help professions to discover occult diseases and maxillofacial pathology cases esp. that has refereed pain earlier. Treatment planning for maxillofacial pathologies involves gathering as much information as possible.
Ultrasonography (USG) is an underused investigation tool by clinicians. It is inexpensive and can provide on the spot diagnosis for the patients. Maxillofacial USG especially intra-oral applications of USG is relatively new and gives many potential uses for maxillofacial radiologists.

The course will consist of a series of lectures and case presentations. The information provided in this course will allow the participants to understand the dentist's role in managing complex orofacial pain problems. The area of temporomandibular disorders will be emphasized since the professions plays a major role in managing these pain disorders. Besides, Being familiar with anatomy and pathology of maxillofacial region especially in conjunction of different pathologies and systemic conditions would help professions to discover occult diseases and maxillofacial pathology cases esp. that has refereed pain earlier such as TMJ. Treatment planning for maxillofacial pathologies involves gathering as much information as possible. Hence along with the focus of the course, the imaging of TMJ with various modalities will also be discussed with a special emphasis on Ultrasonography and (USG) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
