  • Abstract
  • . The anatomical parameters involved in the electrode insertion such as the curvature and the number of turns of the cochlea, make virtual insertion highly challenging. Moreover, the influence of the insertion parameters and the use of different manufactured electrode arrays increase the range of scenarios to be considered for the implantation of a given patient. To this end, the method we propose is fast, easily parameterizable and applicable to a wide range of anatomies and insertion configurations. Our method is novel for targeting automatic virtual electrode insertion. Also, it combines high-resolution imaging techniques and clinical data to be further used into a finite element study and predict implantation utcomes in humans.
