is an investigation which shows soft tissue
problems such as fluid while CT is done to show bone abnormalities. This is putting in simplest terms! I would recommend you to go for the CT for these reasons:
1. Fluid in the ear indicates a middle ear abnormality which needs to be investigated further.
2. CT is the safest and most effective way to find out lesions such as Cholesteatoma
3. CT can also help your diagnosing the cause of your hearing loss
by demonstrating the state of the middle ear and the bones
