Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have become the radiographic investigations of choice for the vast majority of ear and temporal bone disorders. CT provides excellent images of bone and is indicated where osseous changes are of greatest diagnostic importance. MRI is superior in the evaluation of the eighth nerve complex and the central nervous system. Anticipated future advances include the production of three-dimensional images, more rapid scan times permitting dynamic (cine) studies, and the imaging of labeled chemical markers with insights into physiologic derangements.
