  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A temporal bone specimen was sliced horizontally into sections of 1.5mm thickness, and each section was compared with CT images taken in the same plane and of the same thickness. Before cutting, the temporal bone was embedded in celloidin, and these sections showed excellent preservation of membranous structures. Target imaging CT pictures were taken by a GE CT/T 8800 at a CT number range of-1000-+2500 with a window width of 4000. The CT pictures of 9 normal ears were compared to the temporal bone sections. Most structures appearing in the pictures were found to correspond with the structures in the histological sections, except for the jugular bulb and the external auditory meatus which showed considerable individual variation.
