absent/poor mastoid pneumatization
Explanation:
To describe the state of mastoid pneumatization: marked/moderate/absent/poor/excellent

There are three types for mastoid process:根据气房的发育程度可将乳突分为三型:①气化型(pneumatic type)占80%,气房发育良好,气房间隔很薄,乳突外层也薄;②硬化型(sclerotic type),气房未发育,骨质致密。③板障型(diploetic type),气房小而多,气房间隔较厚,外层骨质较厚,颇似头盖骨的板障构造(http://www.stjst.com/bbs/dispbbs.asp?boardid=27&Id=3636)

Example sentence(s):
  • We investigated the value of assessing the degree of mastoid pneumatization in predicting middle ear barotrauma -the most common problem in sport SCUBA divers- in comparison with that of the conventional pre-dive examination method, the Valsalva maneuver.
  • Atelectatic ears, which by definition are poorly aerated, are also usually associated with poor mastoid pneumatization. On the other hand, otosclerotic patients, whose middle ears are usually exceptionally well aerated, also have excellent mastoid pneumat
