Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Computerized axial tomography with contrast enhancement has added a new dimension to the otologist's diagnostic capabilities. Although this radiographic technique is extremely useful, clinicians must be aware of possible diagnostic pitfalls. We shall report on the clinical application of computerized axial tomography (CT scan) in three patients with meningiomas thought to be localized to the middle ear, four patients with cerebellopontine angle tumors, and one patient with an intracranial complication of chronic mastoiditis with cholesteatoma.
