In a study of 26 normal cadaveric temporal bones, a significant correlation was found between the area of the mastoid air spaces assessed from a conventional lateral radiograph and the mastoid volume as determined using high resolution computed tomography. The relationship, which was found to be linear, is of the form V = 0.82 A + 0.13. The correlation(More)
Temperature measurements were performed on isolated cadaveric temporal bones subjected to caloric irrigation of the external meatus. This was undertaken in an attempt to clarify the pathways of heat transfer involved in thermal stimulation of the temporal bone. On average, the maximum temperature change produced across the lateral semicircular canal was(More)
Humans have the inherent ability to perform highly dexterous tasks with their arms, involving maintenance of posture, movement, and interaction with the environment. The latter requires the human to control the dynamic characteristics of the upper limb musculoskeletal system. These characteristics are quantitatively represented by inertia, damping, and(More)
This study involved a comparison of temperature changes occurring in isolated cadaveric temporal bones as a result of caloric stimulation, with information gained from radiological examination of the bones by means of high resolution computed tomographic scanning. This was performed in order to investigate the complex nature of heat transfer within the(More)
