Title (EN) A DEVICE AND METHOD FOR INCREASED LIGHT TRANSMISSION THROUGH COCHLEAR BONE BY LASER ABLATION FOR IN SITU INTRACOCHLEAR IMAGING
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE TRANSMISSION DE LUMIÈRE ACCRUE À TRAVERS L'OS COCHLÉAIRE PAR ABLATION LASER POUR L'IMAGERIE INTRACOCHLÉAIRE IN SITU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for visualizing structures inside a cochlea, comprising the steps of irradiating a cochlear bone with a first laser light to ablate portions of the cochlear bone, to form a thinned area of the cochlear bone, and imaging intracochlear structures by a second light via the thinned area of the cochlear bone to optically scan targeted structures inside the cochlea.
(FR)La présente invention décrit un procédé de visualisation de structures à l'intérieur d'une cochlée, comprenant les étapes d'irradiation d'un os cochléaire avec une première lumière laser pour procéder à l'ablation de portions de l'os cochléaire, afin de former une zone affinée de l'os cochléaire, et l'imagerie de structures intracochléaires par une seconde lumière par l'intermédiaire de la zone affinée de l'os cochléaire pour balayer optiquement des structures ciblées à l'intérieur de la cochlée.
