There are currently no agreed-upon methods of characterizing these radiologic findings. We propose a formal radiologic classification system of SCD based(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Although the theoretical risk of elevated temperatures during endoscopic ear surgery has been reported previously, neither temperature change nor heat distribution associated with the endoscope has been quantified. In this study, we measure temperature changes during rigid middle ear endoscopy in a human temporal bone model and(More)
