A new technique for intra-articular injection of a corticosteroid in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is presented. The corticosteroid is mixed with contrast medium and the administration visualized and controlled using fluoroscopy. When superior and inferior joint spaces have been filled and the soft tissues of the joint have been identified in the fluoroscopic image, additional corticosteroid can be administered to selected sites within the TMJ.
