CT scanning is the modality of choice for analysis of all bony structures of the head, including the temporal bones (patients with hearing problems), paranasal sinuses (sinusitis) and facial bones (usually in trauma to assess for fractures).

A benefit of thin section scanning as performed on our CT scanners is the ability to view the bones and structures in 3D reformatted planes (from the front, from the side), which is very helpful in detecting subtle disease. IV contrast is generally not needed for evaluation of these structures.
