Objective This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of tympanic plate (TP) pneumatisation as well as the various potential patterns. Methods A retrospective study involving the archived Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) files of 70 patients was performed to investigate anatomical variations of TP pneumatisation. Results Forty-eight TPs were found to be non-pneumatised, while 92 were found to contain at least peritubal air cells. Twenty patients (28.5%) did not present any variety of TP…

The temporomandibular joint: pneumatic temporal cells open into the articular and extradural spaces.
TLDR
A case with multiple rare anatomic variations that could add to a morphological picture of hyperpneumatization of the posterior cranial fossa floor, which could signify the involvement of the last four cranial nerves in the clinical picture of TMJ pain is identified.
Detailed Morphology of the Incisive or Nasopalatine Canal
TLDR
The anatomical possibilities of the NPC are numerous and diverse; they include the absence of the canal, so a standardized description of this canal could not be assumed and a radiological assessment is recommended before surgical treatment in the premaxilla area.

Evaluation of articular eminence pneumatization using cone beam computed tomography.
TLDR
Pneumatization of the articular eminence is a challenging entity for TMJ surgery and spread of infections in this region and practitioners who are dealing with TMJ operations and pathology should have detailed information about this anatomical variation since it may cause serious complications.
Evaluation of mastoid pneumatization using cone-beam computed tomography
TLDR
Pneumatization of the mastoid process may extend beyond the external earway and include temporal components of the TMJ in a significant group of patients and there were no significant correlations between pneumatization grade and age or sex.
Computed tomography of temporal bone pneumatization: 1. Normal pattern and morphology.
TLDR
Results suggest that squamomastoid pneumatization follows the classic normal distribution and does not correlate with age, gender, or laterality.
Radiographic evaluation of pneumatized articular eminence in a group of Turkish children.
TLDR
Pneumatization of accessory air cells begins before puberty, contrary to the general opinion and statements, and provides valuable information to understand the spread and differential diagnosis of pathological entities in this region.
Foramen tympanicum, or foramen of Huschke: pathologic cases and anatomic CT study.
TLDR
HRCT is sensitive for detection of the foramen tympanicum because of its thin sections, high spatial resolution, and multiplanar capabilities.
