Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is considered the gold standard in detecting cerebellopontine angle (CPA) or internal acoustic meatus (IAM) lesions such as vestibular Schwannoma in patients presenting with unilateral audiovestibular symptoms - sensorineural deafness, tinnitus and vertigo. However, vestibular Schwannoma is rare in both patients with audiovestibular symptoms and in the healthy population. It is therefore much more likely for otolaryngologists to encounter the report of an incidental finding in the imaged brain than a vestibular Schwannoma itself.
