    CT or MRI which one?

    I have been having ear issues for 3 months now. To make a long story short I would like to get a ct or mri to rule out or diagnose mastoiditis, cholesteatoma, and otosclerosis. I have the symptoms of all these terrible conditions. I would like to know which is best for ear diagnosis. Thank you. Please advise.

    Hello Marie,

    I think that it always the best to get a mri test and not ct, because in ct scan you expose to very high levels of radiation.
    Ct gives a picture of the body sections and can demonstrate well the organs of the body.
    Mri is not a good test for bones, but good for soft tissues, disk or nerve problems spine, brain, tumor detection, etc.

    I think that the best is that you ask your doctor what to do..

    good luck and keep well.
