Summary Information: Semicircular Canals

Semicircular Canals: The semicircular canals are one component of the vestibular system of the inner ear, the deepest cavity of the ear. They are vital to maintaining a sense of equilibrium. There are three semicircular canals, which are oval-shaped fluid-filled tubes, each one situated on a different plan in order to detect the movements of the body. The semi-circular canals include the ampulla and the crista.

Conditions that can afflict the semicircular canals include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and trauma.
