The prerequisite for the correct diagnosis and accurate delineation of skull base lesions is familiarity with the complex anatomy of the skull base. Imaging plays a central role in the management of skull base disease because this region is often difficult to evaluate clinically. CT and MR imaging are complementary; they are often used together to demonstrate the full disease extent. This article focuses on the critical anatomy of the skull base and how this knowledge contributes to accurate disease assessment.
