9 month old healthy immunized child with 17 days OM. Treated with Amoxil x 7 days, cefdinir x 10 days, presents with protruding right ear, suppurative ROM, post auricular erythema, fever, otherwise well appearing.
Would you image this child who has clinical mastoiditis?
If so - CT?
Has your practice changed due to increasing concerns about CT/radiation exposure in infants?
