To the Editor We would like to respond to the invited commentary1 to our meta-analysis and literature review on the benefit of imaging in children with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss (USNHL).2 The authors suggest that our review (1) dismisses imaging for USNHL as useless in most children, and (2) frames imaging in a way that discourages patients and parents from imaging. However, we would like to emphasize that this is neither our message nor what we practice.
