Abstract

Due to the high spatial resolution and the excellent capability of imaging of osseous structures, computed tomography (CT) is of great importance for the diagnosis of pathologic changes of the skull base. CT is the method of choice for the diagnostic evaluation of fractures and middle ear diseases, such as middle ear hearing loss and anomalies [3]. Examination in transverse and coronal plane is necessary for the detection of discrete lesions.
