  • Abstract
  • Cochlear implantation is carried out to recover the sense of hearing. However, its functional outcome varies highly between patients. In the current work, we present a study to assess the functional outcomes of cochlear implants considering the inter-variability found among a population of patients. In order to capture the cochlear anatomical details, a statistical shape model is created from high-resolution human ¿CT data. A population of virtual patients is automatically generated by sampling new anatomical instances from the statistical shape model. For each virtual patient, an implant insertion is simulated and a finite element model is generated to estimate the electrical field created into the cochlea. These simulations are defined according to the monopolar stimulation protocol of a cochlear implant and a prediction of the voltage spread over the population of virtual patients is evaluated.
