[Imaging of the temporal bone. An overview]

Abstract:
Diseases of the temporal bone should be diagnosed by high resolution computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Because of the excellent imaging of bony structures, CT is the method of choice for diagnosing pathologies of the external auditory channel, middle ear, and mastoid. Imaging of trauma is performed with CT. For examining the labyrinth system and interior auditory channel, MRI is the method of choice. This article gives an overview of the anatomy of the temporal bone and describes the most important pathologies.
