Computed tomography scan of the temporal bone is a fundamental imaging modality for both the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of pathologies affecting this complex structure. Temporal bone computed tomography scan provides a more detailed depiction of bone structures, compared with magnetic resonance imaging and, for this reason computed tomography scan is the imaging modality of choice in the planning of otological surgery. The aim of this article is to present a checklist to allow the otolaryngologist to assess systematically and in an organized manner the main anatomical landmarks, anatomical variants, as well as the most common postoperative surgical changes, which can be identified before any safe otological surgery. This revision was promoted by the Spanish Society of Otolaryngology and elaborated in a checklist template divided into the different areas of the temporal bone and the lateral skull base.
