Adult Human Cochlea MRI

The 3D reconstructed technique was used to acquire coronal and axial images of the adult inner ear. The coronal section reconstruction was chosen since it increases visibility of the turns of the cochlea.

The investigators used a method to obtain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to measure cochlear length from the temporal bones of 6 cadavers. By overlapping digitalized rulers on these images it was possible to measure cochlear length.

Adult cochlear length varied between 17 and 26.5 millimeters.
