PURPOSE The objective of this study was to assess the value of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and that of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including postcontrast T(1)-weighted images and echo-planar diffusion-weighted (EP-DW) images, in the detection of residual cholesteatomas after primary bony obliteration of the mastoid. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-three patients underwent a second-look surgery 8 to 18 months after they underwent a primary bony obliteration technique. All… CONTINUE READING
