This study aimed to assess the clinical importance of 3D-FLAIR MR imaging in sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) for head and neck radiologists and otolaryngologists. A novel MR protocol based on 3D-FLAIR and detailed clinical examinations were conducted among 60 patients. The results showed that the 3D-FLAIR MR protocol could identify the proper causes of SSNHL and reflect the severity of hearing loss, and the combination of clinical and MR features is beneficial for the prognostic evaluation of unilateral SSNHL, mainly for SSNHL with no recovery and complete recovery.
