In recent years, cochlear implantation has become an established method for the auditory rehabilitation of profoundly deaf patients and is used in ever more and younger patients. High-resolution computed tomography is performed routinely on all prospective cochlear implant patients and provides important information about cochlear or mastoid pathology that will enable the surgeon to select a side for operation and alert him to surgical obstacles he might encounter [1-4]. In analysing the CT films he must still try to form a three-dimensional image in his mind by looking through a large number of different pictures . Consequently, to make it easier to understand, we applied our own image analysis system to produce three-dimensional reconstructions of temporal bones from CT scans. We focused on the use of this method for the preoperative examination and surgical planning for cochlear implantation as well as for our research purposes. This system and the results are presented here.
