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.
