CONCLUSION Among mass lesions inside the temporal bone, benign tumors and cholesteatomas can be differentiated by contrast enhancement in T1-weighted images (T1WI) and by diffusion-weighted images (DWI). Moreover, DWI will also facilitate discrimination between cholesteatomas accompanied by granulation and other non-neoplastic lesions such as mucoceles and cholesterol granulomas. OBJECTIVES To review the imaging characteristics of mass lesions inside the temporal bone and to investigate… CONTINUE READING
