Overview

Authoritative and lavishly illustrated, this best-selling reference returns in a fourth edition with comprehensive coverage of the current imaging strategies for the evaluation of disease processes affecting the temporal bone and its intricate anatomy. New in this edition is a highly practical "how-to" chapter that presents imaging modalities and technical parameters for CT and MRI as well as an overview of the role of plain film radiography, ultrasound, PET, and PET/CT. The chapter then addresses major clinical indications, providing step-by-step descriptions of how to protocol each case, how to interpret the studies, and how to report findings. The remaining chapters thoroughly cover specific anatomic areas of the temporal bone separately. Each chapter places special emphasis on gaining a solid foundation of the normal anatomy and anatomic variations. It then discusses imaging protocols and image evaluation for specific clinical problems.

Highlights:
-Practical discussion of standard techniques, protocols, and special considerations for imaging using CT and MRI
-In-depth coverage of both common and rare conditions
-Clinical insights from international authorities in the field
-More than 1,500 high-quality illustrations and images, including CT, MRI, and vascular images using CTA, MRA, and conventional catheter angiography

This book is an essential reference for a multidisciplinary approach to assessing diseases affecting the temporal bone. It is an ideal resource for all radiologists, neuroradiologists, head and neck radiologists, and residents in these specialties. It is also valuable for otolaryngologists, otologists, and head and neck surgeons.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A radiologic textbook on temporal bone imaging, providing a basis for the imaging specialist to gain the necessary expertise in anatomy and pathology of the temporal bone. The text has been extensively revised since the first edition of 1986 in order to better address current temporal bone imaging issues and to reflect MRI's rapid encroachment on all aspects of temporal bone imaging. An algorithmic approach based on specific symptoms and symptom complexes is now utilized. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
