Computed tomography of the inner ear canal

The CT scan of the internal auditory canal is an imaging test that produces images of the structure of the ear in the form of thin sub-millimeter slices.


Why can my doctor order this type of test?

Your health care provider may order a CT scan of the inner ear canal for:
 - hearing problems
 - balance problems
 - inflammatory or tumor pathologies

The procedure of the exam

Here is the procedure, we will ask you :

remove your jewelry and any metal object that could affect the quality of the images

lie down comfortably on a table and remain still. The table will slide into the CT machine

Hold your breath for a few seconds while the examination is performed. Please note that we will capture the images very quickly in order to reduce the radiation dose received.

Depending on the type of examination prescribed by your health care professional, you may be injected with a contrast material. The list of these agents will be indicated to you when you make your appointment. If you think you may be allergic, please inform the technologist.

In order to accommodate you, please note that the total time of your visit may vary between 30 and 60 minutes, although the actual exam will only last between 10 and 25 minutes.

A medial order is required to perform this examination.
