1. Imaging of Cochlear Structures by Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).

    BACKGROUND: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a relatively new imaging technique, which provides scans similar to sonography on an optical base. We questioned whether OCT may be helpful in optimizing anatomical orientation in cochlear implant (CI) surgery. In a study on temporal bone specimens we tested, whether OCT provides information about the cochlear topography, particularly in situations, when for cochleostomy the bony otic capsule is already opened but the membranous endosteal layer is still intact. MATERIAL AND METHODS: OCT was performed on five human temporal bone preparations, in which the cochleostomy was carried out still leaving the endosteum covering the ...
