Computed tomography has, in recent years, considerably broadened our knowledge of the localisation and extension of intracranial processes. This has come from more and more refined resolutions in every plane. Surgical procedures are more easily planned because of this. Thereby, better adapted approaches can be used including lesions of the medial skull base.
