    Background: The vestibular aqueduct is a bony canal containing the endolymphatic duct. Its average diameter is 0.6 to 1.5 mm at its midpoint between the crus communes and its opening at the posterior cranial fossa. If the radiographic diameter at this point is more than 1.5 mm, it is considered...
