About this book



This volume provides a complete overview of the imaging of the normal and diseased petrous bone. After an introduction describing the anatomy of the area, subsequent chapters address the various diseases and conditions affecting the petrous bone that are encountered in daily practice. At the beginning of each of these chapters an otologist explains what is expected of the radiologist. The various classic imaging methods are described and discussed in detail, and individual chapters are included on newer techniques such as functional imaging and virtual imaging. Imaging findings are documented with the aid of numerous informative high-quality illustrations. This book, with its straightforward structure based essentially on topography, will prove of immense value in daily practice.

From the reviews:

"This book provides a complete review of the normal and diseased temporal bone. It comprises 16 chapters, each with a clinician’s view of the subject under discussion. … This is an easy-to-read book. The quality of the figures and tables is good and the references are new. … My impression of this book is positive. It is of value to residents, radiologists, and neuroradiologists, and also to clinicians dealing with otoneurological problems." (T. Tikkakoski, Acta Radiologica, Vol. 45 (4), 2004)
