Abstract • Computerized tomography (CT) of the head is rapidly replacing other procedures in the diagnosis of lesions of the cerebellopontine angle and the internal auditory canal. The quality of the information is such that CT may become the only procedure necessary for the diagnostic examination. It substantially diminishes time, expense, and possible radiation hazard to the patient. (Arch Otolaryngol 102:566-567, 1976) References 1.
