A technique of obtaining direct sagittal (lateral) CT images of the temporal bone is described, and the normal sagittal CT landmarks are illustrated. Using this technique, structures seen to advantage by lateral polytomography may now be imaged by CT. The ability to scan the temporal bone in the sagittal plane should be a useful adjunct to coronal and axial images.
