"This reference has 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." 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 specialities. 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

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 (
