Complex anatomy of skull base and temporal bone causes the interpretation of tumoral lesions in these regions to become difficult. Post-operative changes add to the difficulty, because of swelling, hematoma, tissue reconstruction and so on. Consequently, proper choice of imaging modality, protocol of image acquisition and knowledge about surgical techniques are essential in producing a good imaging report. I have a brief discussion about normal anatomy and pre-operative findings in tumors of skull base and temporal bone, and then, I discuss post operative changes more precisely by showing different cases.
