Figure 3 Twenty-three-year-old male patient with a typical cholesteatoma detected with diffusion weighted imaging. A, D: T2 weighted images (A and D) show a fluid-like mass in the left middle ear (white arrow); B, C, E, F: EPI DWI RESOLVE (B and E) depict a hyperintense signal (white arrow) consistent with restriction due to a small cholesteatoma that is better demonstrated on fused images (C and F). DWI: Diffusion weighted imaging; EPI: Echo-planar imaging; RESOLVE: Readout-segmented echo-planar.
