No: An MRI of the temporal bone which includes the auditory canal cannot show noise-induced hearing loss. Hearing loss is evaluated with a hearing test and audiogram.

CT Scan, MRI (extensive left mastoiditis) ears ok. Headache w/ darkness (corner of eyes). Bacterial infection in June. ENT on Fri. Allergy/recovery?
Head ache: "Mastoiditis" is over read on MRI by radiologist. If CT is ok with no bone erosion or complete Opacification then easily treated with meds. It may be unrelated to your HA. If you have no nasal or sinus congestion or middle ear fluid then you don't have clinically significant mastoiditis. you've been on abc and antihistamine already. You will at least get a good head $ neck exam from ENT. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Shadow on CT scan mastoid bone area, MRI results clear, had ear infection and still do. Would MRI only show intercrainial and not bone disease?
Probably: Mri and ct are complementary studies so there is always the possibility that one study will show an abnormality that the other doesn't. Typically a 'shadow' in the mastoid bone means fluid and that should show up on mri. But not knowing for sure what is meant by 'shadow' in your case, i can't be 100% about that. Ask your doctor about your case specifically or an ENT specialist or a neurologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does a CT scan rule out brain aneurysm? 6 months pain behind right ear and upper neck with dizziness/blurred vision. CT normal. What to do next?
No: Labyrinthitis is not diagnosed with either ct or mri. It is a clinical diagnosis, meaning a diagnosis that is made by your symptoms and examination. There is a test called an eng which can be done as well that looks at how your eyes move in response to challenges to your balance system. The eyes are "hard wired" to the inner ear and in cases of vertigo they will move rapidly. This can be measured. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Quite a Lot: MRI is more helpful for soft tissue problems of blood vessels, inflammation, demyelination of brain tissue, and fluid collections. It seems you are undergoing a lot of tests, but without a clear diagnosis you can not be certain of the correct treatment. Ask your physician to explain the different treatments these tests will suggest. Tests are not useful, solely, because you have symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not quite: The CT of the sinuses focuses in on the sinuses (though the radiation goes through the entire skull) and generally covers the entire set of sinuses (sphenoid, maxillary, frontal, ethmoid). The orbital CT will cover the eye sockets (and those pictures are zoomed in). While the sinuses lies behind the eyes (& so they overlap), the focus & coverage of these scans are slightly different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
