Limitations of Computerized Tomography Scanning in Acoustic Neurinomas

Arch Otolaryngol. 1977;103(10):594-595. doi:10.1001/archotol.1977.00780270062008

• Computerized tomography (CT) of the head has certain limitations in detecting small lesions and subtle erosions of bone. The CT scan can give valuable information in the large cerebellopontine angle tumors; however, it should not replace polytomography of the petrous ridges in examining patients for small acoustic neurinomas.
