Term Definition
Magnetic Resonance ImagingA special radiology technique designed to image internal structures of the body using magnetism, radio waves, and a computer to produce the images of body structures.
 
Meckel's Cavea pocket of dura matter (the outermost layer of the meningeal membranes) located near the medial (innermost) end of the petrous portion of the temporal bone-- the bony housing at the base of the cranium that contains the inner ear. Meckel's Cave contains the trigeminal ganglion-- the nerve root of the fifth cranial nerve.
 
MeningiomaA common type of slow growing, usually benign brain tumor that arises from the protective covering of the brain and spinal cord.
 
MicromoleA mole is a measure of units, not weight. One mole = 6.023 x 10^23 (10 to the 23rd power) units - also known as Avogadro's number. It is used in chemistry to establish atomic or molecular weight. For example, 1 mole of carbon = 12 grams. If you look at a periodic table, you'll see carbon has an atomic weight of 12. A mole of water would be 18 grams (2 grams hydrogen + 16 grams oxygen). A micromole is one millionth of a mole.
 
Middle Fossa ApproachA surgical approach for Acoustic Neuromas where an incision is made in the scalp above the ear.
