Response from the Authors
Thank you for that pointing it out. All the CT images were read and reread by an experienced radiologist whose skill is beyond reproach and experience unquestionable. The results of the study therefore are verifiable and it, too, will stand scrutiny. There were no mistakes or mislabelling of the CT scan images of each patient. The reported result of only 3 otic-involved fractures out of 41 patients included in the study stands and is spot on.
