    tympanic membrane marks the opening of the middle ear. Part of the middle-ear chamber extends above the tympanic membrane and is called the epitympanic recess. The incudomalleolar complex lies in the recess (Fig. 2.20). • The recess narrows posteriorly and then widens to open into the mastoid air cells. This has an hour-glass shape and is called the aditus or opening to the mastoid air cells. • The middle-ear cavity contains the ossicular chain of incus, malleus and stapes. • The malleus

There is a contralateral soft-tissue nodule in the right lung. No bony lesion seen. The CT findings are consistent with a left hilar bronchial tumour with invasion of the left bronchus and left pulmonary artery, and contralateral hilar lymphadenopathy, and a possible distant metastasis in the contralateral lung.
