MRI TEMPORAL BONES, WITHOUT CONTRAST: CLINICAL INDICATION: 11 month old female with right sided sensorineural hearing loss TECHNIQUE: High-resolution thin section axial 3D T2 with coronal reformations, coronal HASTE, and axial 3D CISS with coronal and sagittal reformations were obtained through the temporal bones on a 3.0 Tesla system. COMPARISON: None FINDINGS: On the right side, there is fluid in the middle ear cavity. The vestibular nerve is seen but there is absence of a cochlear component. The bony bar in the right internal auditory canal is larger than normal, as on the contralateral side. The inner ear structures, including the semicircular canals, vestibule, and cochlea are unremarkable.
