OBJECTIVE To investigate inner ear of patients with sudden deafness with three-dimensional fluid attenuated inversion recovery (3D FLAIR) MRI, and the relationship between the results of 3D FLAIR and the prognosis. METHODS Twenty-three patients with sudden deafness received 3D FLAIR at 3T MRI, and the signals of inner ear were recorded. Hearing levels were evaluated at initial visit and after treatment. The relationship between 3D FLAIR findings and hearing prognosis was evaluated. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
