QUESTION: Would a tympanogram always reveal if someone has otosclerosis? Or is a CT scan a more conclusive way to determine if someone has otosclerosis? Would you recommend a CT Scan or Tympanogram for Otosclerosis diagnosis?
ANSWER: Although not mandatory, a CT scan done properly will reveal evidence of otosclerosis in the majority of cases. A tympanogram is far less specific.
Thanks for your question!
