Abstract

Background: HRCT with oblique reconstructions, a modification of routine CT provides minute structural details.The purpose of the study is primarily to understand the capability of HRCT with oblique reconstructions in diagnosis and detection of pathologies of the temporal bone in middle ear infection. Method: study is carried out in the Department of Radio-diagnosis, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, from July 2013 to October 2014. A total of 23 referred cases of CSOM were subjected HRCT and oblique reconstructions performed for diagnosis and management. Results: Infection was 3rd most common cause of temporal bone lesion, 1st and 2nd were tumor and temporal bone trauma respectively, incus long process being the most common ossicle involved in erosion. The common presenting symptoms were otorrhea and otalgia. Most patients presented with chronic ear discharge. Conclusions: From the present study we conclude that HRCT with oblique reconstructions in CSOM helps in accurate assessment of pathology prior to surgical exploration regarding location, extent and complication of the disease.
