Doyle described the ABR audiometry technique, reviewed the literature, and compared this method with MRI, which is still the criterion standard for diagnosing small cerebellopontine angle tumors. I agree with most of the discussion but would also like to describe the protocol used by our faculty in patients with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss and state some of the reasons for our choices.
