Abstract

This article deals with the advantages of axial and three-dimensional computed tomography imaging for the diagnosis, treatment planning and postoperative evaluation of the elongated styloid process and/or ossified stylohyoid ligament. Panoramic radiography is a useful diagnostic method but it does not show the exact relationship of the process to the surrounding soft and hard tissues. However, anatomical relations of the stylohyoid complex are precisely displayed by axial computed tomography and its three-dimensional reconstruction, which were found to be useful for the preoperative and postoperative evaluation of Eagle's syndrome. Three illustrative cases are presented and the literature is reviewed.
