Objective: To evaluate the diagnostic concordance between multislice computed tomography
(MSCT) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the early postoperative assessment of
patients after cochlear implantation.
Study Design: Prospective, randomized, single-center, interventional, pilot study on the
diagnostic performance of a medical device.
Setting: Tertiary referral center. Patients: Patients aged over 18 years requiring a CT scan
after cochlear implant surgery.
Interventions: Nine patients were implanted with electrode arrays from three different
manufacturers, including one bilateral. High-resolution MSCT and CBCT were then performed,
and 2 experienced radiologists blinded to the imaging modality evaluated the randomized
