Temporal Bone Imaging Made "Easy": Basic to Advanced Online Course

Offering a comprehensive review of both normal and critical anatomy, this Online Course clarifies temporal bone imaging with the pathology of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss, including pulsatile tinnitus, as well as clinical analyses of inflammatory and infectious processes. Focused on interpretive skills and postoperative insights, expert head and neck radiologists also lead an interactive review of cases from this complex region which most radiologists are not familiar with.
