Temporal bone fractures: otic capsule sparing versus otic capsule violating clinical and radiographic considerations. The study analyzed digital panoramic radiographs of 2,706 adults. A 4% prevalence of Eagle’s syndrome in the population is reported and has a female predilication. MRI and CT scans use X-rays and radio waves to create images of internal organs. Moderate sounds (80 decibels sound pressure level dB SPL or lower) normally cause stereocilia to make tiny movements, triggering the releaseof neurotransmitter molecules from the basal ends of hair cells that activate auditory neurons in the eighth cranial nerve. In this article, these malformations are described by using classification systems used by otolaryngologists for ease of interpretation.
Although it is common to have elongated styloid process bilaterally , symptoms tend to be unilateral. Imaging modalities for diagnosis of Eagle’s syndrome are lateral head and neck radiograph, townes cranial skiagram, , lateral oblique mandible plain film, anteroposterior head radiograph, and panoramic orthopantamotomogram, computed tomography with 3D reconstruction. Among radiological investigations, orthopantamotomography or a skull x ray with anteroposterior and lateral projections are used for initial evaluation followed by non-contrast computed tomography with three dimensional reconstruction to confirm the diagnosis. Eagle’s syndrome can be treated both surgically and non surgically depending on the symptom severity.
