This article presents an approach to imaging conductive hearing loss in patients with normal tympanic membranes and discusses entities that should be checked as the radiologist evaluates this potentially complicated issue.

Facial nerve hemangioma is a rare and benign vascular tumor, and accounts for 0.7% of intratemporal tumors. We report the second case described in the literature of a facial nerve hemangioma in its ty...
A 29-year-old African American woman with a history of iron-deficiency anemia presented with one-year of ear fullness and hearing loss. She also endorsed right unilateral pulsatile tinnitus and loss o...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease. Sensorineural and conductive hearing loss have been reported in RA, but the results of most studies are not in agreement. The pathogenesis of the he...
Imaging used to determine the cause of unilateral sensorineural hearing loss (USNHL) in children is often justified by the high likelihood of detecting abnormalities, which implies that these abnormal...
This presentation reports a novel case of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), presenting with an early cutaneous lesion within the external auditory canal, in a patient being assessed for conductive ...
The purpose of this study is to identify factors that may contribute to conductive hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss is a type that is due to a problem with the outer or middle ear. Be...
Study to accumulate post-market clinical evidence for the safety and effectiveness of the Sophono Alpha 2 and Alpha 2 MPO systems in subjects diagnosed with conductive hearing loss, single...
The prevalence of chronic otitis media among Greenlandic children is one of the highest in the world and twenty per cent of schoolchildren have impaired hearing in the frequencies for norm...
A hearing loss affects the quality of life and the natural development of children. The new generation of hearing devices provides a huge number of options to them. These new hearing aids...
The sensitivity and specificity of the Hum Test is being investigated in it's ability to detect conductive hearing loss. The hum test is simply elicited by asking the subject to hum to him...
Hearing loss due to interference with the mechanical reception or amplification of sound to the COCHLEA. The interference is in the outer or middle ear involving the EAR CANAL; TYMPANIC MEMBRANE; or EAR OSSICLES.
A rare PARAGANGLIOMA involving the GLOMUS TYMPANICUM, a collection of chemoreceptor tissue adjacent to the TYMPANIC CAVITY. It can cause TINNITUS and conductive hearing loss (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE).
Hearing loss due to damage or impairment of both the conductive elements (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE) and the sensorineural elements (HEARING LOSS, SENSORINEURAL) of the ear.
The formation of dense connective tissue in the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE that does not necessarily cause or lead to loss of hearing.
Transmission of sound waves through vibration of bones in the SKULL to the inner ear (COCHLEA). By using bone conduction stimulation and by bypassing any OUTER EAR or MIDDLE EAR abnormalities, hearing thresholds of the cochlea can be determined. Bone conduction hearing differs from normal hearing which is based on air conduction stimulation via the EAR CANAL and the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
