How Analyze was Used
“Analyze software was used to create three dimensional image volumes by combining information from each subject’s postoperative scan and a single body donor cochlea. Preoperative CT scans were not available for the subjects participating in this study; therefore, a scan of the nonimplanted ear was used to identify structural anatomy, and this image was coregistered with the image of the implanted ear. Micro CT and orthogonal-plane fluorescence optical sectioning images from a donor cochlea were used to locate and visualize the nonbony structures. The CT-estimated metric used in this study was electrode-to-modiolus distance, which refers to the lateral distance (in millimeters) of an electrode from the medial wall of the cochlea.”
