Clinical and surgical application of reformatted high-resolution CT of the temporal bone.
High resolution CT has played a pivotal role in temporal bone imaging since the early 1980s. Although the appearance of MR imaging technology with its superior demonstration of fluid-containing spaces of the inner ear and the posterior fossa structures, CT continues to offer distinct advantages for the evaluation of conductive hearing loss, and petrous apex lesions. With the advent of helical scanning techniques, CT is increasingly the imaging study of choice for definitive preoperative temporal bone imaging.
