Virtual cochlear electrode insertion via parallel transport frame

Abstract : We present an automatic, fast and parametrizable algorithm to perform the virtual insertion of a cochlear electrode array into a pre-existent mesh of the human cochlea. Our method reorients the electrode according to the parallel transport frame, a local parameterization of the cochlear centerline directions, robust to the centerline curvature changes. It allows to control the initial roll angle and the extension of insertion from full to partial. Such a virtual insertion, chained with finite element simulations on the electrical activity of the electrode and the cochlear nerves, will enable to test in silico the effects of implant design and positioning on a given patient, and optimize these parameters accordingly.
