The measurement results agree with those of previous investigations. The course of the tympanic portion is S-shaped and has an impression on its upper surface. High resolution CT reproduces dehiscences of the bony canal in a percentage similar to that of microscopical methods and in relevant sites. Pneumatization does not influence the dimensions of the 2 portions.
