X-ray Mastoid AP View

What is an X-ray Mastoid (AP View) Test?

The inner ear mastoid is essential. Despite being labelled as one, the mastoid isn't as stiff or solid as other bones—it's air-filled sacs like a sponge. The mastoid must receive air from other ear parts, including the Eustachian tube, to function correctly. Any middle ear infection can block the Eustachian tube, leading to mastoiditis, an inflammation of the mastoid bone.

Why is it done? 

This X-ray procedure is one of the few diagnostic and treatment procedures for mastoiditis.
