Abstract: Automatic Estimation of Cochlear Duct Length and Volume Size
The exact cochlear length and size are required is an important factor of selecting the suitable cochlear implant. We present a fast cochlear length and volume size estimation method from clinical multi-modal medical images. The method utilizes atlas-model-based segmentation to estimate a transformation from a model to an input volume. The result is used to transform a well-defined segmentation and a points-set of a scala tympani to the input image that segments and estimates the scala tympani length in a few seconds using standard hardware e.g. a laptop.
