Description

By continuous and simultaneous table translation, source rotation and data acquisition, spiral CT allows rapid volumetric imaging, and is especially valuable or pre- and post-operative evaluation of cochlear implant patients, despite limited resolution. Compared to radiography, spiral CT provides 3D images of the inner ear with nearly isotropic resolution, allows interactive visualization and quantitative analyses of the individual cochlear anatomy. Compared to other tomographic imaging modalities, spiral CT is the best choice when bony and metallic structures are involved.
