      Feasibility Assessment of Optical Coherence Tomography-Guided Laser Labeling in Middle Cranial Fossa Approach

      Introduction: Different approaches have been developed to find the position of the internal auditory canal (IAC) in middle cranial fossa approach. A feasibility study was performed to investigate the combination of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), optical coherence tomography (OCT), and laser ablation to assist a surgeon in a middle cranial fossa approach by outlining the internal auditory canal (IAC). Materials and Methods: A combined OCT laser setup was used to outline the position of IAC on the surface of the petrous bone in cadaveric semi-heads. The position of the hidden structures, such as IAC, was determined in MATLAB software ...

    2. Experimental Visualization of Labyrinthine Structure with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Experimental Visualization of Labyrinthine Structure with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Introduction: Visualization of inner ear structures is a valuable strategy for researchers and clinicians working on hearing pathologies. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution imaging technology which may be used for the visualization of tissues. In this experimental study we aimed to evaluate inner ear anatomy in well-prepared human labyrinthine bones. Materials and Methods: Three fresh human explanted temporal bones were trimmed, chemically decalcified with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), and mechanically drilled under visual control using OCT in order to reveal the remaining bone shell. After confirming decalcification with a computed tomography (CT) scan, the samples were scanned with OCT ...
