Learning temporal bone microanatomy is one of an otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) resident's most important and problematic tasks. The authors present a new method for generating and reconstructing 3D temporal bone models and their applications in stereoscopic virtual environments. The virtual laboratory and its associated software can run on ordinary personal computers.
