  • Develop a statistical shape model of the cochlea and surrounding structures. Incorporate functional information, such as cochlear frequency maps, into the statistical model.
  • Build predictive methods to estimate the precise shape of a patient's inner ear from standard low resolution CT images.
  • Evaluate the predictive ability of the statistical shape model using clinical CT scans, with special emphasis on the critical structures and accuracy of the frequency map.


  • Methodology for statistical modelling of the inner ear shape and function; demonstrator description. Status: August, 2014
