Cerebellopontine angle tumors

Otolaryngol Clin North Am. 1988 May;21(2):337-48.

Abstract

Acoustic neuromas account for approximately 80 to 90 per cent of cerebellopontine angle tumors. Useful imaging studies include (1) high-resolution CT of the internal auditory canals using extended scale and "bone algorithm" techniques, (2) infusion study of the cerebellopontine cisterns, (3) gaseous or opaque CT cisternography, and (4) MRI.
