Caption: colour enhanced, high resolution, cross sectional CT scan of the temporal bone (blue) of the skull showing the structures of the inner ear. The horseshoe shaped structure (purple) surrounded by black is the smallest bone in the body, called the Stapes. This is one of the bones which conducts sound coming in from the external ear to the inner ear. The rounded (brown) structure with spiral turns is the cochlea. Lower in the image is a semi-circular canal (green) involved with balance. The black areas represent air. Multiple small holes (yellow) in the bone represent mastoid air cells which are infected (mastoiditis).
