ARKINK, Enrico; FRIJNS, J. e VERBIST, Berit. Answer to quiz case: Temporal bone imaging. S. Afr. J. radiol. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.1, pp.1-4. ISSN 2078-6778. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/sajr.v19i1.929.
Computed tomographic scanning of the petrous bone and magnetic resonance imaging sequences of the inner ear and cerebellopontine angle of a deaf patient were performed to find an explanation for his deafness, and to establish whether he would be a good candidate for cochlear implantation. The imaging features were considered pathognomonic for incomplete partition type III (IP type III). Further management and discussion of this deafness subtype are detailed.
