Imaging of the temporal bone has recently been advanced with multidetector CT and high-field MR imaging to the point where radiologists and clinicians must familiarize themselves with anatomy that was previously not resolvable on older generation scanners. Most anatomic reference texts rely on photomicrographs of gross temporal bone dissections and low-power microtomed histological sections to identify clinically relevant anatomy. By contrast, this unique temporal bone atlas uses state of the art imaging technology to display middle and inner ear anatomy in multiplanar two- and three-dimensional formats. In addition to in vivo imaging with standard multidetector CT and 3-T MR, the authors have employed CT and MR microscopy techniques to image temporal bone specimens ex vivo, providing anatomic detail not yet attainable in a clinical imaging practice. Also included is a CD that allows the user to scroll through the CT and MR microscopy datasets in three orthogonal planes of section.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This beautifully illustrated book attempts to explain the complex anatomy of the temporal bone using CT an MR microscopy. . This book is written primarily for radiologists, but it is useful for all students of temporal bone anatomy as well as practicing otolaryngologists. . This will be highly useful to otolaryngology residents, practicing otologisst, and neurotologists. . It is a high-quality book that provides some of the most detailed descriptions of temporal bone anatomy I have encountered and the imaging complements the text well." (Eric Roos Snyder, Doody's Review Service, April, 2009)"The book is very well organized and beautifully presented. This book would be very useful to anyone involved with imaging of the temporal bone. Students seeking an introduction to imaging can use this as an effective tool for programmed learning. More advanced radiologists will appreciate the additional detail provided by the microimaging techniques combined with the beautifully reconstructed and reformatted images. Otolaryngologists would also appreciate this book. It is a superb imaging atlas of the temporal bone." (Hugh Curtin, Radiology, Vol. 263 (1), April, 2012)
