1. Optical Coherence Tomography of the Cochlea in the Porcine Model.

    Abstract: Objectives/Hypothesis: To demonstrate the feasibility of optical coherence tomography in microstructural imaging of the porcine cochlea. Study Design: Ex vivo, porcine model. Methods: Optical coherence tomographic images of the porcine cochlea were obtained by thinning the bone from the basal turn of the cochlea leaving the endosteum intact. The images were compared with the corresponding histological sections. Results: In the areas of thinned bone, images were obtained of the stria vascularis, Reissner's membrane, basilar membrane, tectorial membrane, scala media, scala tympani, and scala vestibuli. The bone was too thick for adequate light penetration in the areas where ...
