Abstract

Tinnitus refers to auditory perception of internal origin. It is a relatively common problem and affects men and women equally. Clinically, it may be divided as pulsatile or non-pulsatile and subjective and objective. Although pulsatile tinnitus (PT) is less common, it is more likely to be associated with underlying vascular tumors, lesions or anomalies. Imaging forms the baseline for evaluation of objective tinnitus, primarily in the form of computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. We present a review of common causes of PT, along with emphasis on key imaging findings.
