The book Imaging Handbook on Anatomy of Cochlea is specially written from surgeon’s perspective on radiology, which will help and guide the implant surgeon in reading images preoperatively. This book covers normal anatomy and anatomical variations in detail. It provides an insight into the minute detailed imaging of the cochlea and its related structures (facial nerve, cochlear aperture, IP-II, IP-III, common cavity, and internal auditory canal). It emphasizes on how a normal anatomy is different from anomalies and to what extent cochlear anomalies will impact surgeries and their outcomes.
When ENT surgeons think of starting their own cochlear implant (CI) surgery journey, they rely on reports from radiologists. A lot can be missed, leading to complications intraoperatively. Hence, understanding not only the imaging of normal cochlea but also knowing the cochlear aperture, facial nerve, facial recess, and internal auditory canal, and placement of the facial nerve and cochlear nerve prior to the surgery is of utmost importance to the cochlear implant surgeon.
• This handbook will teach you about radiological imaging of cochlea, from fundamental structures to uncommon anatomical variances.
• Facial nerve in cochlea, cochlear aperture, IP-III, and cochlear hypoplasia are beautifully shown in this book.
• Easy to understand with labelled diagrams and chapters written keeping in mind the practical approach in cochlear implant surgeries.
